“Moscoso Cosmos: The Visual Universe of Victor Moscoso”


Instituto Cervantes of Chicago (31 W. Ohio St.), the city’s leading not-for-profit center for Spanish language and cultural exchange, today hosts “Moscoso Cosmos: The Visual Universe of Victor Moscoso” a new curated exhibition spotlighting the graphic design work of Spanish-American artist and AIGA Medalist Victor Moscoso (March 15-June 15).

Moscoso is best known for his psychedelic rock posters, advertisements and underground comix in San Francisco during the ’60s and ‘70s. The New York Times observes, “Moscoso’s riotous, perceptually and conceptually confounding works advanced a countercultural ethos of imaginative and instinctual freedom whose effects continue to reverberate in today’s artistic culture.”

The exhibit, features more than 80 works. Free Admission. Gallery hours: Monday to Thursday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.; Friday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.; Closed on Sunday. For more information: chicago.cervantes.es

It is present in more than 90 cities in 45 countries, through its centers, classrooms and extensions, on five continents.
