In 2011, Americans will be able to see the faces of five Latin American music legends on new stamps with art created by San Diego artist Rafael Lopez.
The “Latin Music Legends” commemorative stamps show the faces of artists that have not only made a huge impact in the Latin community, but who also crossed over to gain mainstream audiences.
The faces of Celia Cruz, Carlos Gardel, Carmen Miranda, Titi Puente and Selena will be represented on the stamps as part of the U.S. Postal Service’s 2011 commemorative stamp program.
Ethel Kessler, the program’s art director expressed, “My goal was that when you see the stamp, you hear the music.”
