The DePaul Museum of Art and DePaul University Library have partnered to create research guides to accompany DPAM exhibitions.  This guide serves as a starting point for conducting research about the artists, works of art, and context of items in the exhibition.  

Key themes of this exhibition include political satire critiquing social, historical and political issues including corrupt politicians, gentrification, violence and racism.​​ García seeks to ask questions, spark conversations and challenge viewers to re-evaluate historical narratives.
