About

This project started in 2007 in Los Ángeles, California. Graficomovil is a 1948 delivery truck transformed into a mobile center for the arts, it promotes the appreciation of printmaking and trades related to the art of the book: hand setting type, bookbinding, woodcut, linocut etc. Graficomovil will also host a selection from our library of illustrated books.

We are asking for you help to bring Graficomovil from El Paso, Texas, to Pátzcuaro, Michoacán, México. More than 1000 miles. 

Your support will help with the move and finance the first year of art programming, allowing us to hire young artists for demonstrations and workshops wherever Graficomovil is taken.

In Mexico we will fix the engine and redesign the interior to host the library, a gallery and a printshop. The primary home for the Graficomovil will be Patzcuaro, but it will also travel to communities around the Patzcuaro lake and elswhere. 

In 2006, a grant from Creative Capital Foundation from New York, helped us finish the outside murals of the truck and the gallery space created inside. With the assistance of institutions it was able to provide programming in Los Ángeles, Colorado, Kansas and El Paso, where it is awaiting to be moved to Mexico.

We believe that nowadays it is very important to keep the creative traditions alive and the arts of the book are among those, books are the holders of immense treasures, we must keep them alive and we should keep creating more of them. Help us keep speading them to other generations and cultures!

Risks and challenges

Our main challenge is going to be how to engage the community. For that we are counting on hiring young local artists to help us with demonstrations, workshops and public talks in the plazas and public spaces we hope to visit. Another challenge we forsee are problems with the local police and authorities of the towns. But we will try to go to the local offices and apply for any permits necessary for us to be in public spaces.
