In an effort to share in the cultural celebration of Chicago’s “Capital of the Mexican Midwest,” three artists known for their street art and illustrations will be exhibiting their work Friday, July 5, 2013 at Prosper Skateboard Shop located at 2620 S. Central Park, from 6 to 10 p.m. in the heart of La Villita.
The exhibit titled “Celebrating the Establishment,” honors the 40-year foundation of Mexican culture on the city’s Southwest Side. The Little Village corridor has proven its worth and wealth and is only second to the Magnificent Mile in annual revenue. To increase the worth of the culture, these individuals hope that this exhibit encourages the creative stimulation of art within the Little Village boundaries.
Naco, Jasso and MSilva have worked together in different capacities in the past years lending a visually artistic hand to communal efforts and educational art programming on the South Side. Their next conjoined effort will go toward the development and execution of a mural, located in Little Village community, meant to spread peace, prosperity and to share in the celebration of culture. Fundraising efforts for this endeavor will begin the night of the exhibit.
