People Made Visible  is happy to be working with two visiting artists this summer in West Chicago. As part of an Artist-in-Residency program, also supported by the West Chicago Cultural Arts Commission and the West Chicago City Museum, two artists will be working with the community on creative projects over the next three months.

William Estrada is a Chicago-based artist and teaching artist who received his MA in 2015 in Art Education from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Juan Chawuk is a Mayan artist from Chiapas, Mexico, who is currently working in the United States as a visiting artist he has worked on mural projects.

Both artists joined Frank Fontana to talk about their creative process and art being the most important science of them all.
