You're invited to come to our next Chicago Heroes & Arts Adventures workshop --
Monday, April 7 (6:00-7:15, 7:30-8:30 p.m.)
Mozart Park Fieldhouse
2036 N. Avers Ave.
Chicago, IL 60624
all ages, free & open to the public
We will look at the graphic work of Chicagoan Carlos Cortez, the Mexican/German/American poet, artist and labor activist. Cortez made prints following the tradition of the Mexican printmaker Posada, honoring his International Workers of the World fellows, Lucy Parsons (activist wife of Albert Parsons, the Haymarket Martyr) and others.
He supported, as a member of the Board of Directors, one of the oldest publishing companies in Chicago: the Charles Kerr Press. He was also involved with members of the Chicago Surrealist Movement. We will look at his art, his influences and learn some of the fundamental printmaking techniques he used to produce his images.
Location: Mozart Park is on Armitage Avenue in Logan Square -- several blocks east of Pulaski Road, just south of Dickens and Shakespeare Streets.
