In connection with the proclamation declaring 2022 the “Year of the Alebrijes” in West Chicago, community partners have come together to create a series of events and activities that will celebrate the theme within the community.
These partners include: West Chicago Park District, West Chicago Public Library, Mexican Cultural Center DuPage, People Made Visible, and the West Chicago Cultural Arts Commission.
The City has launched a webpage at westchicago.org/alebrijes that lists all the upcoming events and activities that include a special exhibit at Gallery 200, a new community mural, a portal project, outdoor movie, community art projects, and more.
Residents are encouraged to check in periodically and to follow each partner on social media as additional entertainment will be added throughout the year.
Visit westchicago.org/alebrijes to view upcoming entertainment, view the “Year of the Alebrijes” proclamation, or to read about the exhibit at Cantigny Park.
