Free Street Theater and Ricardo Gamboa


Free Street Theater will commission renowned artist and activist Ricardo Gamboa to work with a team that includes visual artists, poets, and storytellers to research the history of Mexican migration to Chicago, capture the oral histories of local residents, and engage in interactive community installations. The completed work will be presented in programs held in the Little Village and Pilsen neighborhoods next summer, and will be featured in the 2017 Mexican Independence Day celebrations scheduled for next September.
