Metzli Cultural Center is hosting a fundraiser for Alfonso "Piloto" Nieves, a Pilsen sculptor on the verge of releasing a book about the history of his work. Nieves, a self-taught artist, primarily works with clay and recycled materials to create his sculptures. All money raised at the July 12 event will go toward community art workshops and the publishing of Nieves' book.
