Public Event | Latinx Comix Chicago: Arts against Erasure

Saturday, October 2

Artmaking in advocacy for Latinx Chicago spaces and stories happens in many ways across this city, from song and spoken word, to prose and public art. The Chicago History Museum and the Black and Brown Comix Arts Festival are proud to present a celebration of Latinx comic artists, illustrators, and more who use their creativity to amplify their culture and history.

Find inspiration in Latin American art and get hands-on as you create your own art with us. Peruse and purchase work by local Latinx comic creators, illustrators, printmakers, and more in our open-air vendor space.

Free admission. 


The Black & Brown Comix Arts Festival (BCAF) celebrates the creativity people of color in the comic arts and popular visual culture and is dedicated to the notion that all audiences deserve to be subject in the culture in which we participate. BCAF events include expos, kids activities, film screenings, panels and conversations, cosplay events, and much more.
