Date Farmers

The Date Farmers, an artmaking duo consisting of Armando Lerma and Carlos Ramirez, coined their name early in their careers after joining artistic forces in 1998. From the viewpoint of American-born Chicanos, the Date Farmers explore topical subjects with insightful simplicity. They explore the dangers and injustices affecting Chicano farmworkers, and the imagery in their murals lures, oppresses and inspires us all.
