The Pilsen Project: An Introduction

"A work of art is the unique result of a unique temperament"
Oscar Wilde

Welcome to the Pilsen Project, a blog and experimental news site working in tandem with Art Pilsen as part of a graduate project. The Pilsen Project is run by a group of DePaul University journalism students: Katherine Hall, Amanda Boleman, Irish Silvestre, and Monica Macellari. Here, over the next four weeks, we will be posting a variety of media related to various artists, galleries, projects, and other elements of Pilsen's vibrant art community, as well as a log of our experiences reporting on this neighborhood.
We will be working with Pilsen artist, and owner/moderator of Art Pilsen, Miguel Cortez who has kindly agreed to let us link back to his site and Twitter feed. Everyone should go visit his site. No, really.
Over the next four weeks, check in on the tabs located at the top of the blog. For each week, we will be posting various media--be it video, photographs, audio, or words--about various themes, one for each week. We will also be tweeting our progress, as well as any new shows/other art happenings that are posted to Art Pilsen.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our corner of cyberspace!

Katherine H.
