Pros Arts Studio

Pros Arts Studio (PAS) will be honoring community leaders Paul Teruel and Maria Fraga, and PAS student/intern Rocio Sanchez at the 1st annual Art As Our First Language Spring Fundraiser.

For more than 34 years, PAS has continually offered free art programs to children and youth in the Pilsen, Back of the Yards, Bridgeport and Little Village communities of Chicago. With arts as a tool to promote youth development and leadership, it also hosts the We Are Hip Hop Festival and the annual Dia De Los Muertos celebration, the longest-running Dia De Los Muertos event in the city of Chicago.

The fundraiser will include a catered cocktail reception with musical entertainment by the University of Chicago Jazz X-tet and DJ-collective Sonorama. A silent auction will feature items such as round-trip airline tickets and art by local Pilsen artists. All proceeds will go directly towards supporting Pros Arts Studio programming.
