National Museum of Mexican Art, 1852 W. 19th St. (Pilsen), Chicago, IL 60608
Former Vice President Gabriel Coronado is planning a little cultural excursion into Pilsen this weekend, inviting fellow alumni to join and view the annual Día de Muertos exhibition at the National Museum of Mexican Art.
The museum is easily accessible by car being located near I-290 and I-55. There is a lot of free parking on the streets directly bordering Harrison Park (Damen, 18th, Wood, 19th), however pay attention to the signs because some of the side streets nearby are permit parking only. On Sunday, you will not have to worry about meter fees.
The museum is equidistant from two Pink Line stops: 18th Street and Damen. From either, it is only about a 2 block walk. The Damen bus is another option, as it drops you off essentially right across the street.
The museum is family friendly and handicap accessible. If you have never had the opportunity to visit before, I can not recommend making the trip enough. Even if you have, why not visit again? The exhibits and art works on display are constantly rotating, and always offer a unique view into our city’s history and a culture that has played a major role in it for decades.
All alumni are welcome, and anyone else that would like to come is as well.
