When Sam Coronado founded the Serie Project in 1993, he envisioned a workshop where underrepresented artists could benefit from collaboration and learn the serigraphy printmaking technique. Coronado's vision for the Serie Project came after he encountered Self Help Graphics in 1991, a non-profit studio serving the Latino community of Lon Angeles. Coronado's participation in this program advocated to him that prints, a vital aspect of the Chicano art movement, can continue to reflect the Mexican American and Latino experience in the United States. Hoping to grant better access to this historically significant medium, Coronado made it his mission to provide affordable printmaking services in his hometown of Austin, Texas.
In 2013, the Fort Wayne Museum of Art purchased the archives of the Serie Project, marking the single largest acquisition of artwork by Latino artists in its history. This exhibit, featuring selected works from the archives, brings a variety of socio-political topics to the fore, with many artists focusing on cultural issues of the Latino community throughout the country. Others employ a decidedly pop art style, many exploring the dark side of this genre.
