CONNECTION TO PILSEN:
We are celebrating the release of Beyond Heaven: Chicago House Party Flyers, Volume III with a weekend long exhibition and programs including a signing by author Mario "Liv It Up" Luna who grew up in Pilsen and a roundtable discussing the history of party crews hosted by Luis Gabriel Aguilera, a member of Pilsen-centric Ultimate Party Crew.
