Looking for Puerto Rican Artists
The Institute for Puerto Rican Arts and Culture (IPRAC) is building its permanent home in the historic Humboldt Park Stables, a building culturally significant to Chicago and embraced by the people of Puerto Rican descent who have settled in the Humboldt Park community. The restoration of this architectural and historic treasure will serve as a stimulating setting for IPRAC's exhibitions and cultural activities and will open this fall. Upon completion, IPRAC will represent the only institution on the continental U.S. devoted solely to Puerto Rican arts and culture. As part of the Institute's permanent exhibitions, IPRAC is seeking an artist to design and create a map of Puerto Rico for the Stable's outdoor courtyard. This map will be featured at the grand opening this fall and will be located in the center of the courtyard within a circle of commemorative bricks measuring approximately 19 feet in diameter.
