Fiestas de la Calle is part of a new Puerto Rican art series titled “Borinken me Llama”, funded by the Chicago Community Trust’s Strengthening Artistic and Cultural Diversity Grant. In this event, Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center’s artists and performers will re-create the world famous Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastián in our 6,000 sq. ft multi-arts space in Hermosa.
