The Chicago International Latino Theatre Festival is back in-person! The National Museum of Mexican Art is proud to present the Midwest premiere of Tijuana September 23rd – 26th. Directly from Mexico City’s Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol, performer Lázaro Gabino Rodríguez depicts a man’s social experiment, in which he mysteriously appears as a new resident of a neighborhood with a new sweatshop job and a secret history. What does democracy mean in Mexico today for 50 million people living on minimum wage? What do we expect from democracy today and from politics beyond?

My mother Sylvia grew up in Little Village and is a proud Chicagoan and Mexicana. She has been an early childhood advocate most of her life - all while raising a family and dealing with various immunodeficiency diseases. My siblings and I love to refer to her as "Mother Earth." She has always used art to make the days flow better. Nowadays the pen is elusive, but she is so proud to share some of her art with you beautiful people. We hope her sublime work helps you find some peace in your days.
