Luis Tubens is co-founder of the Pilsen Public Art Tours. He has given thousands of tours of the iconic murals in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood. For 10 years he worked for the National Museum of Mexican Art as an art educator. From there he worked for four years as the outreach coordinator for then 7th District Cook County Commissioner Jesús “Chuy” García, whose district covers Pilsen. He also studied under the legendary muralist Jose Guerrero. His knowledge of the murals comes from years of studying Mexican art, and his relationships with community organizations and muralists. He currently resides in Pilsen and when not giving tours he works as a performing artist.
This counts as a cultural event!
