PILSEN — The topic of free trade will be the focus of a new art exhibit at the Uri-Eichen Gallery.
The North American Free Trade Agreement — a 1994 deal that altered trade relations between Mexico, the United States and Canada — is the subject of many of the art pieces in the show, including large banners by Maine group ARRT! (Artists Rapid Response Team), woodblocks from the Mexican group ASARO, and a piece from artist Steve Blank that looks at the secret negotiations of the countries involved in the agreement.
The show opens at Uri-Eichen, 2101 S. Halsted St., at 6 p.m. Friday, with a panel discussion on free trade at 8 p.m.
