The life and art of Jose Guadalupe Posada, who lampooned politicians and recorded vivid images of the Mexican Revolution with his art, will be showcased in a free screening of the movie “Searching for Posada” tonight at the Sun Valley Museum of Art.

The free screening will start at 5:30 tonight—Thursday, May 5—at the Sun Valley Museum of Arts in Ketchum.

Courtney Gilbert, the curator of Visual Arts, will offer a pre-screening introduction to the printmaker who inspired Mexico’s Taller de Grafica Popular to use art for social causes and impacted everything from the Cuban Revolution to the Grateful Dead.

Posada was born in Mexico in 1852 and lived there until his death in 1913. His images, which include Day of the Dead images, are among the most widely seen and his legacy perhaps the most influential of all Mexican artists, according to the Posada Art Foundation. Yet his name has yet to achieve the level of recognition of Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and some other artists.

The screening and talk are being offered as part of the SVMoA’s current BIG IDEA project “The Mexican Graphic Tradition: Printmaking and the Political.”

Registration is not needed to attend in person. Those wishing to view the livestream version should click on https://www.crowdcast.io/e/art-and-revolutions-posada/register?mc_cid=a5bfa15847&mc_eid=cbc4fe5143
