Mobile Street Art Cart brings collaborative, community-relevant artmaking to the streets of Chicago during LATINxARTS!
The Mobile Street Art Cart provides free art projects with people on the streets in their neighborhoods, addresses issues relevant to the community, creates a temporary space where the community and artist can talk about art and its impact on our communities, and shares resources to support artmaking and community-building.
Teaching Artist Bio: William Estrada was born to immigrant parents and grew up assembling memories in California, Mexico, and Chicago. His teaching and art making practice focuses on engaging the complex experiences within marginalized communities and contested spaces. He documents and analyzes public/private learning spaces to transform, question, and make connections to established and organic systems through discussion, creation, and promotion of counter narratives. His current research is focused on developing community based and culturally relevant programs that question power structures of race, economy, and cultural access.
