Welcome to Art in Chicago, Art and Culture Pages and Open Doors Magazine. We also offer a communication tool open to all who wish to contribute ideas or information documenting the history of Latino Arts and Culture in Chicago.
When we started around 1998 there were not many sites dedicated to Latino culture in Chicago. Then; I saw the need to open our own media forum. The site has changed over time and will continue to change over and over again. With the creation of online calendar Arte y Vida compiled by Amor Montes de Oca, the need to provide a calendar of events became secondary, while defining new directions has been the ultimate quest; finding what is really needed in the information field of Latino Art in Chicago.
I firmly believe that an independent, non-commercial voice is an important assett for active communication.
