TPP awarded Chicago Community Trust through the Institute of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture (IPRAC) Chicago

Trailer Park Proyects is proud to announce that we have been awarded the Chicago Community Trust trough the Institution of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture (IPRAC) in Chicago.

TPP will be running our projects in the city of Chicago from March until the month of October. We will be exhibiting artist from Puerto Rico and introducing them into the Puerto Rican communities in the city of Chicago so the people can learn more about the artists from the Island. It's a great way to connect our art with the Puerto Ricans who live in Chicago and keep the roots of that community with the Island.

Artists will exhibit at the Trailer and a small room in the IPRAC simultaneously and the exhibiting artist will be giving a workshop for the community. This will help the viewers understand the artists works and methods of working as well as create a bond with the artist and the Puerto Rican roots.

The opening of the first exhibition will be held on March 15th and will feature the work of co-founder Jorge Rito Cordero. We will have on display our limited edition prints as well as documentation of the project working in the Island. After the opening we will hit the road and visit some schools in the community, galleries and museums.

This is a great way to promote the project our artists. Other artists that will be exhibiting are Rafael Miranda, Omar Velazquez, Admin Torres, Aby Ruiz, Quintin Rivera Toro and a few more. Please keep checking the site and our facebook page for updates and opening dates.
