PILSEN OPEN STUDIOS
FALL - 2020
Pilsen Arts & Community House now serves as stewards to one of Chicago's largest studio artwalks held each year in Pilsen.
18th St. Pilsen Open Studios was started in 2003 by a group of longtime Pilsen artists, most but not all of them Latino. The focus of the event is on "studios" as the place of production, allowing the public a rare glimpse at where (and how) art in Pilsen is made. All artists involved in the event either work or live in the neighborhood or have a strong historical connection to Pilsen. A limited number of cultural spaces/cafes in Pilsen also participate in this event to show work from Pilsen connected artists who don't have a studio in the neighborhood.
We understand the core values this event has maintained throughout the years. It is with honor and care the organization will have this be a signature community event for many years to come.
This event is self funded through participation of each artist, studio space, gallery and local business. By donating to this event, you are supporting the continued efforts and helping with keeping this event accessible to all. Thank you!
ARTS & CRAFT FAIR
SPRING - 2021
"Hecho En" Arts & Craft Fair will be an annual event supporting both the Artist Vendor community and the Pilsen Arts & Community House organization. This Art Fair is focused on the Artists, Artisans and Makers of our diverse communities from all over the United States. Over 100 makers will be lined on 18th Street, between Ashland and Paulina Avenues exhibiting many styles, cultures, and colorful original artwork and original designed products. This arts and craft fair honors the dedication of our creative community and the public who appreciates and supports the Maker’s movement.
This event is self funded through participation of each artist vendor. By donating to this event, you are supporting the continued efforts and helping with keeping this event accessible to all. Thank you!
SPRING - 2021
As part of the project "Is This Modern Society?" the international artist Jupiterfab would like to celebrate this "getting together again" situation with an iconic mural in the streets of Pilsen Chicago. A spot that could become a place of safe gathering and reconnection.
"Is This Modern Society?" is a worldwide, long-term project created and led by the artist Jupiterfab. It started in late 2016 and is an art-social initiative with a goal to inspire personal reflection and raise awareness on the importance of finding a balance in the use of technology in our lives.
The project works on two spheres: art and education. On one side, Jupiterfab creates murals, art installations and art exhibitions, while jointly running presentations, workshops and debates. He collaborates in different cities and countries with schools, universities, art centers, local governments, museums and debate centers.
