    Immigration Dialogue through Mural Art at UIC Latino Cultural Center, presented by The Chicago Community Trust

    Celebrate immigration by bringing your art to life.

    Wednesday, Oct 18, 2017 11:00 - 12:30 PM @ UIC Latino Cultural Center
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    The UIC Rafael Cintrón Ortiz Latino Cultural Center hosts the largest contemporary indoor mural in Chicago, El Despertar de las Américas (The Awakening of the Americas), painted in 1996 by UIC students and local Pilsen muralist Hector Duarte. The rich visual imagery can inspire storytelling for not only recent arrivals, but also long-time Chicagoans. Our stories can help us expand our understanding of different points of view.

    Using art and storytelling, participants will explore the civic issue of immigration, recognizing how we are all connected to immigration.
