    Artwork:
    Virgen de Guadalupe (1975-1978) is a set of three portraits featuring López, her mother and her grandmother – depicted as the Virgin of Guadalupe, but with a “modern woman” twist.
    López’s self portrait “was López’s way of providing role models, while paying homage to working-class women.“ ~Lili Wright in “Yolanda López’s Art Hits ‘Twitch Meter’ to Fight Stereotypes,” in The Salt Lake Tribune (1995)
    Praise:
    By Chicano women for “sanctifying” average Chicanas or Mexican women and acknowledging their many responsibilities
    Criticism:
    By some members of the Catholic Church who objected to the series because they thought of it as the “debasement of a holy image.”
    (Erickson)
    Popular and Controversial Works
    “Who’s the Illegal Alien, Pilgrim?” Poster by López, featuring her version of an Aztec God with crumpled immigration papers
    Created in 1978 during a period of political immigration debate in the U.S.
    Suggests that white people are the true illegal aliens for coming to what is now the U.S. and taking the native peoples’ land.
    Image/style borrows from “Uncle Sam Wants You” Army recruiting posters
    Many Raza groups carry signs with this image on it while protesting immigration rights
    “NAFTA: The True Goatsucker of Mexico:”Acrylic by Yolanda López.
    Represents “the monster that North American Free Trade Agreement has become for Mexicans in Mexico. NAFTA, as a blood sucker exists to exploit and take advantage of Mexico’s workforce and resources.”

    Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a holiday which takes place Oct. 31-Nov. 2
    Celebrated mostly in Mexico and Central American - and some areas of U.S.
    Participants celebrate the memories of their dead loved ones
    Altars (offerings for the dead) are created in honor of the dead loved ones and include papelpicado (tissue paper banners), candles, incense, bread and sometimes photos of the departed and flowers.
    Calaveras, which are humorous representations of skeletons, are the most popular figures seen during the event
    - Originated in the early 1800s
    The skeleton form represents the god of death
    Vigil uses his Dia de los Muertos art (in the form of mixed media, digital art, tattoos, sculpture and more) to make a statement and to put a modern spin on a classic medium
