Hector Duarte

Muralla sobre lienzo
Opening Reception February 27, 6-8 pm
Exhibition runs through June 28, 2009

Maestro Hector Duarte (b.1952) has been a leading muralist in the Chicago
area since the 1980s. His early training at the Siqueiros Mural Workshop in
Cuernavaca, México has had a fundamental impact on his artistic career as he
continues to apply many of the Modern Art theories and social philosophies
that emerged from the Mexican Muralist Renaissance. Visit this unique
exhibition and witness Maestro Duarte at work, completing his 150 ft. mural.
This work in progress also continues the Museum’s three-year commitment
to immigrant-centered programming.

The artist will be painting in the Torres Gallery March 4th – May 9th, 2009
Wednesdays and Saturdays 10:30 am to 1:30 pm
