Cartoneria: The Mexican Tradition of Paper Mache Exhibition

Cartoneria is a work in progress exhibit throughout the Mall, NOW – May 7.

The original exhibit, Alebrijes: Creatures of a Dream World premiered last summer/fall at Cantigny Park, introducing these creations to the US – right here in Chicagoland. These incredible folk art pieces endured heavy weathering after 6 months outside. Three artists have returned and will be restoring their artwork onsite through April. Meet the creators, help us reapply paper mache, and see what goes into this art tradition from Mexico City.

A special thanks to the Mexican Cultural Center DuPage and Cantigny Park.
