San Francisco Poster Syndicate has teamed up with the artists of the Women of the Resistance mural in Balmy Alley to produce a portfolio that seeks to bring further awareness to the important fight of the activists represented in the mural.
The portfolio complements the mural, which was completed in 2018, by creating screenprints of all 38 women portrayed. This project highlights this group of women who are powerful beacons of hope during these dark times and hopes inspire others to continue moving forward along their path of resistance.
The 38 screenprints in the portfolio includes one poster dedicated to each of the women plus a screenprint reproduction of the mural printed by Sun Night Editions. All prints in an edition of 20 were printed on Cougar Natural Smooth 100# Cover paper. The portfolio case is bound and designed by Sam Companatico with assistance from Asa Nakata, also has an explanatory graphic of the mural that shows who is represented, who the artist is and where the activist is in the mural. The portfolio is available for $350. Individual prints from the series will also be available at the exhibition for $45 each.
