Mexican-born artist Juan Angel Chávez created “Vida Simple" at the entrance to the Damen Pink Line Station. This collage-like multimedia mosaic splices together neighborhood imagery in a cultural representation of Pilsen, from resident portraits to industrial spaces and wildlife in the city. It celebrates the individuality of this great neighborhood and its people.
