|18th Street Pink Line|
First, we'll meet at the National Museum of Mexican Art, located at 1852 W 19th St. The museum is very close to public transit, the Damen bus and the Pink Line. We'll ride through the neighborhood and see beautiful ornate churches and historic buildings reminiscent of Eastern Europe baroque architecture erected by Bohemian settlers. We will also be stopping (somewhat frequently) throughout the neighborhood and looking at many old and modern murals. We'll be seeing art by Francisco Mendoza, Jose Guerrero, Gabriel Villa, Chema Skandal, Jake Castro, and many others. Join us afterwards for lunch at one of the many delicious Mexican restaurants near the heart of Pilsen (18th St).
There are also other events around Pilsen and Chicago that you can visit after the ride: Pilsen Open Studios, Open House Chicago hosted by the Chicago Architecture Foundation, and the annual Day of the Dead exhibiton at the National Museum of Mexican Art.
