Mobile Street Art Cart brings collaborative, community-relevant artmaking to the streets of Chicago during LATINxARTS!

The Mobile Street Art Cart provides free art projects with people on the streets in their neighborhoods, addresses issues relevant to the community, creates a temporary space where the community and artist can talk about art and its impact on our communities, and shares resources to support artmaking and community-building.
