Some more stuff had been painted since I took the picture. Unveiling of the mural was on the 11th of August. Really cool new mural.Declaration of Immigration(r)

“The Declaration of Immigration mural class partnered young artists with teaching artist Salvador Jimenez to conceptualize and create a 2 story high x 30ft wide mural on the Southwest exterior wall of the Yollocalli Arts Reach/Radio Arte shared building.

The mural is a visual dedication to all immigrants and allies who have marched hundreds of thousands of miles to advocate for fair legislation for immigrants and who have stood strong in the face of anti-immigrant rhetoric. Declaration of Immigration looked at some of the historic and current issues affecting immigrant communities and serve as a reminder that the United States of America was founded on emigration and settlement.”

DSCN2991 this is what murals should look like, i love this one because it is so detailed and has much meaning to the neighborhood of Pilsen.
rancho alegre my favorite mural in Pilsen, if this mural was able to get restored  imagine what we can do to the other murals.

This is painted on the building that housed Hector Duarte’s Studio. Hector has worked on a lot of murals in Chicago and in Mexico as you can see on this link http://www.hectorduarte.com/Artist.asp?ArtistID=22741&Akey=MNDGM7X3

We were recently in touch with Gamaliel and let him know about the documentation of the murals in Pilsen . Here are images of the indoor murals at Juarez that were a collaboration among several artists.

These two images show how the mural on the 16th Street viaduct looked when it was first painted and how it looks now.  The artist that painted this piece was Aurelio Diaz who was responsible for many pieces in the community including some of the work inside Juarez High School and at St Pius.

The top image was sent to us by the Chicago Public Art Group from their archives.
