Latino Art Exhibit at ETHS Starts with Artist Robert Valadez

 A Latino Art Exhibit will be presented at Evanston Township High School in celebration of Latino Heritage Month in October, with a special kick-off event with Chicano artist Robert Valadez. From 7 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 2 Mr. Valadez will discuss his artwork during an opening reception in the ETHS main lobby. The Latino Art Exhibit will be on display at the high school Oct. 2-13.

 Born and raised in Chicago’s Pilsen community, Mr. Valadez is actively involved with Latino community organizations by contributing his urban murals and other projects. He participated in the painting of the mural titled “Esperanza,” by Jaime Longoria and Malu Ortega Y Alberro, at Benito Juarez High School where he first began painting as a student. His work is part of a permanent collection at the National Museum of Mexican Art, and he has received numerous commissions as an accomplished muralist.

Mr. Valadez will lead a school day program for ETHS visual arts students from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 12. ETHS families, staff, and community members are invited to the ETHS Latino Advisory Committee (LAC) meeting in the Welcome Center, room E112, to meet the artist and discuss his works. Valadez designed t-shirts for the LAC this year.

The Latino Art Exhibit opening reception on Oct. 2 is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served.  The Latino Art Exhibit will continue at the Evanston Public Library from Oct. 16-23.
