This piece is on 18th and Racine painted by Aurelio Diaz

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

This was one of the early murals done by Pros with children from the neighborhood.

We are very excited to be in communication with the artist responsible for this piece at Juarez High School. He has been posting comments and we hope to help support a repainting of this work.

This was a picture I thought was amazing.  I am interested in wierd things having a meaning behind them.  This caught my attention while I was at the Pink Line train stop on 18th.  I don’t like the way I took the picture though.  This and a couple of others are the only ones that look anywhere near mint condition.  However, to be honest this doesn’t look new to me but you be the judge!
