Last Sunday, instead of working on my novel, I visited the National Museum of Mexican Art in Pilsen. I love this museum, and I’m always surprised that more Chicagoans don’t know about this treasure in the Pilsen neighborhood.
Years back I saw the Frida Kahlo exhibit there. Currently the museum has several great exhibitions on display including “Open Doors,” by SergioGomez, and “Outside In,” about the Mexican-American street art movement in Chicago. The National Museum is carefully curated, so you don’t feel overwhelmed, parking close by is easy, and there are great Mexican restaurants down the street!
