Tortilla Social Salvador Jiménez-Flores Jamaica Plain, Egleston Square Dates TBD
Tortilla Social is an artist-driven project that will transform public spaces through the use of printmaking as a tool for self-expression, advocacy, and art education. Led by artist Salvador Jiménez-Flores and partnering with arts organization Urbano Project, Tortilla Social will utilize conventional and unconventional spaces for art and food throughout the Jamaica Plain and Egleston Square neighborhoods of Boston for a series of pop-up, interactive printmaking and food workshops. The mobile project will feature a multi-functional tortilla press built by the artist and will engage participants of all ages in a variety of printmaking techniques and gastronomical explorations. Prints and documentation of the year-long project will be presented during a final exhibition at Urbano Project with handmade tortillas and tostones produced by the tortilla press.
