Thank You to Natasha Marin for Providing Piano Music for ART and Revolutions

The piano music for ART and Revolutions was performed by Russian born and trained Natasha Marin. Although schooled originally as a classical pianist Natasha’s abilities extend well beyond the classics. She in fact performs for a variety of events many of which for charity and often with her husband actor/comedian Cheech Marin. For Art and Revolutions, Natasha provided several interpretations of musical compositions by Mexican composer Agustin Lara (1897– 1970). Natasha captured the spirit of Agustin Lara's beloved compositions in a way we hope and believe would have pleased Posada himself. Thank you Natasha!

Information about Natasha may be found at and at her Facebook page

San Francisco Art Institute Screening or ART and Revolutions

Standing next to a 1924 print showing Posada's famed calavera Catrina, Mexican Consul General in San Francisco, Dr. Andres Roemer, opened the Sept. 17 screening of Searching for Posada: ART and Revolutions. Over one hundred attendees consisting of artists, students, professors and the general public watched the documentary. The ensuing Question and Answer session with director Victor Mancilla and producer Jim Nikas lasted longer than the film itself. Mission accomplished!

First San Francisco Screening of Documentary: ART and Revolutions

The new documentary about artist Jose Guadalupe Posada, ART and Revolutions will be screened at the San Francisco Art Institute on September 17, 2014.

The film will be shown at 7:30 PM at the main theater (900 Chestnut Street San Francisco, CA 94133) which seats about 200 people.

A film trailer may be viewed at:

The screening at the San Francisco Art Institute represents a unique occasion as it is one of the most prestigious schools on the West Coast and it is home to one of the earliest murals done in the US by Diego Rivera back in 1931. Diego Rivera played a big part in helping to recognize Posada's role and legacy.
