Presented by Art Encounter, this day-long bus tour begins at the National Museum of Mexican Art’s exhibition Arte Diseño Xicágo, featuring artworks and photographs reflecting the influence of Mexican immigrants from the World’s Columbian Exhibition in 1893 to the Civil Rights Era. Additional stops include a tour of Pilsen’s vibrant murals and visits to two local artists’ studios–painter and muralist Hector Duarte and Marcos Raya, known for his paintings, murals, and assemblages with political themes. Led by artist and Art Encounter Artistic Director Joanna Pinsky, the tour also includes lunch at a local Mexican restaurant.
