In 1993, Sam Coronado founded the "Serie Print Project" to provide his community of Austin, Texas access to printmaking. More than just a program dedicated to the creation of contemporary art, the Serie Project is intended to have a long-lasting impact on the lives and careers of the participating artists, and on the community as a whole. The Project’s achievement of social change comes from facilitating socio-economic progress in the lives of its artists and from the connectivity the Project fosters in the Latino and other cultural communities. Works in this exhibition are part of a major purchase by the Fort Wayne Museum of Art in Indiana of over 200 works created over the last two decades from The Serie Project. In the last two decades the organization has fostered over 250 artists from different professional levels and ethnic backgrounds, who together have produced a rare and special collection of serigraphs.
