Multi-color poster printed on white paper advertises a "Benefit for Casa El Salvador Farabundo Marti and Frente Sandinista Liberacion Nacional (FSLN) in Nicaragua." The overall poster image shows a row of burning buildings along the bottom of the page with tall flames and smoke that extend upward into a purple sky at top. A skeletal figure riding a horse and holding a missile appears in the flames at lower left. A woman in a dynamic pose wearing a red top and green pants appears at lower right. This woman also appears within the outline of another figure in a dynamic pose at bottom center that contains a collage of people, raised fists, and a sign that reads "No War." "Resistance! Love in a Bitter Time" printed at top left in large yellow letters. Small text at center lists performers, event, and contact information.The artwork for this poster arrived at Inkworks press as three mechanically-produced color separations on paper created with pen, brush, and ink - the artist was so skilled that he knew which combinations of tone printed in Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow would result in the full color reproduction.
