Interview with Juan Sanchez on Dec 14, 2015, Segment 5, Part 2

CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-

Sanchez discusses the issues that he has encountered because of the political statements he makes through his art. He states that when he was an undergraduate he faced some obstacles, especially because his professors did not attend the work that he was doing as a student. Yet, he talks about other professors who did encourage his artistic approach, especially Leon Golub who later became his mentor. Sanchez continues talking about the scholarship that he received called “The Third World Artists” which gave artists of color a year to work in the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Shop for free and also to take courses in printing techniques.
