Multi-color poster on white paper shows a photograph aligned at top right of a woman with curled black hair wearing a black outfit with prominent jewelry. The woman stands behind a dressing table with a large mirror that reflects a sculpture with figural elements. A chair decorated with shells and other organic shapes appears in the foreground at left slightly out of focus. "Amalia Mesa Bains / Installation Artist / Chicana" is printed below the left corner of the photograph. A quote appears at center left opposite the image that reads, "Artists stand as both guardians and witnesses to history in an age of global chaos."

Text along the bottom of the page notes the photographer is Idaljiza Liz-Lepiorz, and lists major funders and supporting organizations.
