Memoria Presente: An Artistic Journey
WHY? GLAD YOU ASKED!
[quote]For its 30th anniversary, the museum brings together works of 30 established and emerging artists to celebrate their past, present,and future, Chicago and Mexico, old and new. In a collaborative environment of diversity —creative and otherwise— “Memoria Presente” is multicultural, a showcase of communication and creativity, illuminating the museum’s philosophy of a Mexican culture “sin fronteras” (“without borders.”) The exhibition includes Yvette Mayorga’s frosted candylands, Rodrigo Lara Zendejas’ human-shaped, hanging clay sculptures, and William Estrada’s “Mobile Street Art Cart,” used to physically bring art directly to Chicago’s South Side streets and neighborhoods.[/quote]
