Consisting of a series of black and white digital panels selected from the 2001 publication, "Images of America, Mexican Chicago, "by Rita Arias Jirasek and Carlos Tortolero, this unique exhibition aims to tell the stories of Mexican Chicago through a montage of old photographs and documents collected throughout the Mexican Community in the Chicago metropolitan area.
