Tortilla Social | Salvador Jiménez-Flores

Tortilla Social is a participatory project that will transform public spaces through the use of printmaking as a tool for self-expression, advocacy, and art education, and food as a uniter of community. Led by artist Salvador Jiménez-Flores and partnering with arts organization Urbano Project, Tortilla Social will include a series of pop-up, interactive printmaking and food workshops throughout Boston. The mobile project will feature a multi-functional tortilla press built by the artist and will engage participants of all ages in a variety of printmaking techniques and gastronomical explorations.
