WELCOME TO SELF HELP GRAPHICS & ART
Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG) was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1973 and is dedicated to the production, interpretation and distribution of prints and other art media by Chicana/o and Latinx artists. Our multidisciplinary, intergenerational programs promote artistic excellence and empower our community by providing access to space, tools, training, capital and beyond.
SHG has produced over 2,000 art print editions and more than 54 Atelier projects and exhibitions all over the world. Now, nearly a half-century later, SHG continues to foster emerging Chicana/o and Latinx artists through its world-class printmaking practice and supports the role of artists as leaders, both within its organization and the community.
