Paint on porcelain tile
2004, Arts in Transit
This painting on ceramic tile depicts a tapestry in which Cicero’s rich cultural history and diversity unfolds. Cicero is a town that is historically noted as a working class community composed primarily of immigrants that have strived to establish themselves and realize the American dream. A township map of Cicero serves as a foundation of the piece, as well as decorative references to the cultures that comprise the community. Some of the town’s most important streets and landmarks provide a structural element, upon which the narrative unfolds.
