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 Kira shares with us:

"Born and raised in Pilsen. I wanted to bring affordable art classes to the community with imagery that represent our culture/heritage."

About the owner: Kira, former co owner of the Surreal Rabbit, is still doing what she loves in the Neighborhood she grew up in, just under a different name!."My goal is to offer affordable bi-lingual classes & teach images that everyone can relate to. Whether its a show I grew up with like "El Chavo", Selena or something geeky like Star Wars or Pokemon, these images come from a place of nostalgia & love.
