Jose Guerrero (1938–2015) was an artist and community leader who impacted his community through printmaking, mural painting, and activism. Guerrero is best known for his work in the Pilsen neighborhood, where his studio and workshop was a hub for art classes, mural tours, and political organizing. Jose Guerrero, Presente features a portfolio of prints made in his memory by twenty-five Chicago artists, as well as some of his own works on paper.
