Event Description:

Join us in welcoming two renowned artists, Maestro Antonio Martorell from Puerto Rico and Maestro Hector Duarte from the Pilsen community in a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration. They will lead an interactive dialogue explaining how arts, culture, and migration have influenced their own work as artists.

Antonio Martorell Cardona (left) is a Puerto Rican painter, graphic artist, writer, radio, and television personality. He participates in art events around the world with frequent exhibits in Puerto Rico and the United States.

Hector Duarte (right) is a painter, printmaker, and muralist building upon the Mexican muralist tradition and the community mural movement. The Latino Cultural Center at UIC selected him to paint one of the largest indoor murals in the City of Chicago in their gallery.
