Best Postcards Phoenix 2010 - Irma Sanchez
Lots of great art came out of the movement against Senate Bill 1070, and among our favorites is a set of postcards produced by local artist Irma Sanchez. They are simple and accessible, priced at about $5 — and you can send them to friends and family! (Though we're keeping our set to ourselves.)The cards come in packages of three; each scene has a photo captioned, "Viviendo a Arizona," "Trabajando en Arizona" or "La Vida en Arizona" ("coming to Arizona," "working in Arizona, and "living in Arizona"). Respectively, they depict a Latina woman walking across the desert, cleaning the floor, and wearing black-and-white jail stripes. That pretty much says it all.
