Milner Plaza Alebrije Exhibit – Opening June 17, 2023 This summer we will be expanding La Cartonería Mexicana onto Milner Plaza. This outdoor exhibition will feature seven alebrijes and other fanciful spirit animals on loan from the MCC DuPage. The objects reflect the creativity of contemporary Mexican cartoneros. This exhibition will be free and open to the public during our regular operating hours.
Installation with the Mexico City cartoneros begins June 14-16. This outdoor exhibition can be viewed from June 17- October 1, 2023, and is made possible in part by a grant from Los Amigos del Arte Popular.
