18th Street Pilsen Open Studios
Every participating artist is asked to talk about their connection to Pilsen. And if new to the neighborhood, to describe what drew them here.
This is what Jamie shares with us:
"I have been living in Pilsen for the past 8 years, and HOUSE Studios is a one car garage recently converted into a DIY art studio. I have been teaching after school programs and running free workshops for youth all over Chicago, and now I get to do art with the kids and adults in Pilsen from the comfort of the open studio!"
