[Garcia, Max; Louie 'The Foot' Gonzalez; artists]
[Screenprint poster calendar for October 1976, from the series "Calendario De Comida"]
[Sacramento]: Royal Chicano Air Force, 1976. 28x22.25 inch screenprint poster, very good. Image of the Last Supper over a food stamp; text below reads "These Last Supper Food Stamps are brought to you by President Ford, Earl Butz, The Department of Agriculture and all the People that are now out of jobs." Text at right reads "Food: Anything that nourishes or stimulates, whatever helps something to keep active and enables it to grow and live. Food Stamps: Something welfare workers issue to the Poor once a month to nourish their misfortune and stimulate their despair." The RCAF, a Sacramento-based Chicano artist collective, produced posters promoting social movements of the era, especially the struggle of farmworkers for better working conditions, as well as screenprints in support of specific events to benefit the community and calendar folios.
