Ayotzinapa Lives, the Struggle Continues

April 5 - 6, 2016

10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Artist in Residence



Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center

Through the use of clay and repurposed trash, this two-day art workshop will explore the relationship between the 43 student teachers disappeared in Ayotzinapa, Mexico, and Chicago’s undocumented students and allies. We are all part of this Earth—and when you set fire to Earth—it becomes rock. Now, it is time for us to unite and demand justice, from Ayotzinapa to Chicago.

  • Sculptor, Alfonso “Piloto” Nieves Ruiz will work with undocumented students and allies to create casts of their faces for an art installation. All materials will be provided.

All audiences are welcome to join us at this program. Captioning, ASL Interpretation and Audio-Description services will be available upon request by contacting us.
