More About Pilsen Open Studios:
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.
