Aldo Castillo Gallery has closed its location at 675 N. Franklin St. in Chicago.
Aldo Castillo Gallery displays stunning art from emerging and established world artists backed by a powerful social vision. Founded in 1993 by visionary-owner Aldo Castillo, the gallery exhibits international fine art with a special focus on contemporary Latin American art. The collection covers a wide variety of media, including painting, sculpture, photography, installation and works on paper. Represented artists include Mexican artist Maribel Portela, Guatemalan Rodolfo Abularach, Cuban Paul Sierra and Colombian Luis Fernando Uribe.
The gallery's second passion lies in raising awareness for Latin American art as well as the international cultural community as a whole. Towards these ends, Aldo Castillo has founded the Aldo Castillo Arts Foundation, which will continue the gallery's mission of art education, art exposure and cultural tourism. Projects include the Abstract Mind Mural with the Neumann Association and exhibitions at the Chicago Public Library, the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum and Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA).
The gallery program focuses on social activism, arts education and cross-cultural programming. Castillo's experiences as a Nicaraguan fine arts dealer and art curator for Guatemala's Popol Vuh Museum bring an inspiring authenticity to his work.
Aldo Castillo Gallery sponsors lectures, presentations and live cultural performances. They work with both private and corporate collectors and also host events and classes in the gallery. Artwork is available for sale and rent, and expert consultants are available to advise collectors of any experience level.
Located in River North with new entrance on Franklin Street. Parking available on street and in several parking lots.
