Hello once again! This weekend is the 12th Annual Pilsen Open Studios and there is much art to see and events to check out! Pilsen is home to a rich history of local artists, artisans and muralists. I first shared my work during Pilsen Open Studios in 2005 and at many of the alternative art spaces in Pilsen and Little Village since then.
Oct. 18th (12-9pm) & Oct. 19th (12-6pm): Mujeres Mutantes will be at Sip n’ Splash and are #17 on the map! We are exhibiting work that includes paintings, mosaic, mixed media art, and jewelry. All one-of-a-kind and affordable.
Also, I’ve been working my butt off on a side project for the collective and its finally done! On Saturday, Oct. 18th from 5:00-8:00 pm join us for the Mutantes Zine (Vol. 1) Release Party! Zines will be available for $5.00 and will fund future zines and public art projects by Mujeres Mutantes.
I can’t believe its been almost 10 years since I first showed my work in the Pilsen community! I’ve learned that its about helping each other out. It is now 2014 and all of my best friends are artists. For me, art is not fame or money but a way of life. Keep on truckin’ Chicago!
