Home Whenever there is a period of revolution, art is a response that manifests in many forms. One way Nicaraguans responded to this period of revolution was through political posters and mural art. In the 1980s, Nicaraguan streets were filled with political and mural art. This image of Nicaragua differs drastically than that of the 1990s, when political posters were torn down and mural art was painted over, leaving us with stories of the lost Nicaraguan murals, black and white images of these murals, smaller-scale reproductions of the murals, and few color photographs of the murals. David Schwartz, previous professor of Albright College, visited Nicaragua during the 1980s and took full-color images of the “lost” Nicaraguan murals that show the story of the Nicaraguan people during this time of revolution. His slides have been recovered and can be found throughout this site.
