Wasserman Retirement Symposium

This poster was created using artwork now in the public domain, a detail from Antonio Ruiz’z School Parade, which can be viewed in Mexico City. The conference honors the career and legacy of Mark Wasserman, a historian of early twentieth century Mexico. You can view the conference program here.I wanted to tie the poster to the “retrospective” conference theme, so I used layers and filters in GIMP to create the see-through text box which allows one a “retrospective” view of the painting of young boys marching for their country.
