This coming weekend is the 8th annual 18th St Pilsen Open Studio walk. Featuring work by well over 100 artists at more than 50 locations throughout Pilsen, this walk is always fun to attend. There's a lot of great old buildings in the neighborhood with interesting spaces to check out. And there's always a wide variety of artwork to see. Here's a list of the artists scheduled to show work at studios, apartments, cafes, galleries, and other spaces in the area bounded by Western & Halsted and in between 16th St & Cermak Rd.
There will be free shuttle buses connecting the locations. Artist Jose Guerrero will lead a neighborhood mural walk on Sunday with times TBA.
This weekend would also be a great opportunity to visit the National Museum of Mexican Art's Day of the Dead exhibition. They're located at 1852 W 19th St. The museum is free and open 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
