Rini Templeton: A Legacy of Art and Activism

Rini Templeton (1935 – 1986) was a prolific sculptor, graphic artist and activist who dedicated her life to progressive, grassroots struggles in Mexico, Cuba and the US.   She described her graphic work as “xerox art,” meaning anyone could freely photocopy her drawings to put on flyers, pamphlets, banners, picket signs, T-shirts, anything to support freedom and justice.

The web library of Templeton’s art is a 600 image-deep collection of women, workers, protestors, children and celebrations, all still freely available for use toward a just cause.
