Tour leader: Geraldo Lujan Cadava, Northwestern University

Pilsen is the historical heart of Mexican Chicago. The neighborhood is home to the greatest collection of Mexican and Mexican American murals in Chicago, and one of the greatest in the United States. It is also home to one of the best museums in the United States for Mexican and Mexican American art: the National Museum of Mexican Art. This tour will guide you through the neighborhood, with stops at some of the murals, the museum, and, of course, at one of the neighborhood’s many taquerias, where we’ll eat lunch.

Please note: Participants will travel by bus. The murals are at street level and the museum and restaurant are both ADA accessible. Participants will pay for their own lunch.

Limit 40 people. $20 members, $30 nonmembers
