Alebrijes: Creatures of a Dream World

Presented by Cantigny Park at Cantigny Park, Wheaton IL

Ongoing
Alebrijes: Creatures of a Dream World

Outdoor installation at Cantigny Park features 48 captivating “alebrije” sculptures celebrating Mexican artisanship and cultural diversity.

The creatures are here! The partnership of Cantigny Park, DuPage Convention & Visitors Bureau, Mexican Cultural Center DuPage, and the City of West Chicago presents a five-month outdoor art exhibit featuring dozens of mythical animals created by six Mexico City artists and inspired by Mexican folklore.

The word alebrijes—pronounced ah-leh-bree-hehs—refers to imaginary creatures that possess elements from different animals. They originated in the 1930s from the vivid dreams of Mexico City
