Ricardo Levins Morales
I am an artist by trade, a healer by temperament and a troublemaker by necessity. My art and my writing both grow out of my relationships with communities and movements in struggle for a more livable world. I also offer support and reflection for organizers and others facing the dilemmas of trying to create a future out of materials from the past.
My art can be viewed and purchased at these web sites:
RLM Art Studio, (https://www.rlmartstudio.com/). This is my main site which displays my available posters, cards and buttons. The work is intentionally priced so as to be as accessible as possible. Framing and shrink-wrapping options are available.
Ricardo Levins Morales Fine Art site. Hosted by Fine Art America (http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/ricardo-levins-morales.html), on this site you can order many of my works on canvas, metal and other surfaces - and at a variety of sizes.

One of the great inventions of the past hundred and fifty years is the rear-view mirror. It permits us to move forward while remaining aware of where we have come from. As […]
I wasn’t going to say anything aloud about the ninth ward, Minneapolis city council race. I don’t ignore electoral contests exactly but they don’t dominate my attention, either. You see city councils, […]
I would like to invite the leadership of the Ordway Theater to a panel discussion on why I didn’t consult them before creating this poster and why they should be grateful for […]
There are no discontinuities in history. The trees of today were yesterday’s seeds; the gentle hills were once mountains, worn down by time; the transformation of forest into desert proceeds by small […]
The United States in Tecumseh’s day was bold and brash but untested, its survival far from assured. It had only won independence with backing from the Dutch, Spanish and (decisively) the French […]
