“Superheroes” Calendar

January 14, 2010


This seems to be the year of political art calendars. I just came across this one, which looks great: New Immigrant Community Empowerment (NICE) has just released Dulce Pinzon’s 2010-2011 “Superheroes” Calendar. Pinzon’s “Superheroes” series is “a collection of 20 color photographs of Mexican and Latino immigrant workers dressed in the costumes of popular American and Mexican superheroes in their work environment, raising questions of both our definition of heroism and our ignorance of and indifference to the workforce that fuels our ever-consuming economy.” All proceeds of the calendar sales will go to NICE, and it’s only $12 if you get it HERE. More of Dulce Pinzon’s work can be found HERE.
