Lower West Side’s Pilsen community is where Chicago’s rich tradition of architecture meets the vibrant contributions of the city’s Mexican immigrant community. As such, Pilsen is an enriching study of emerging arts practices in urban communities as well as the impact of gentrification in community development. Stops include the National Museum of Mexican Fine Art, Pilsen’s historic 18th Street, and an emerging entrepreneurial business community that’s rich with artistic and culinary diversity.
