The Monarchs Of Pilsen

"Viajeras (Travelers), an art exhibit that will open here this week, tries to make a connection between the long southbound migrations of Monarch butterflies to their winter home in Mexico and the Mexican immigrants who travel to the United States to find work, and thereby survive," Hispanically Speaking News reports.

"The exhibit, sponsored by the Pintoras Mexicanas (Mexican Painters) collective, will open on Friday at the Casa Michoacan in Chicago's mainly Latino Pilsen neighborhood and consists of 75 interpretations of Monarch butterflies."

Fitting, because Pilsen is already home to a permanent Monarch sanctuary teaching a similar but expanded lesson.
