About the Artist

Gus Fuentes is a Latinx seamstress from the East Side of Chicago. Fuentes has worked in the MCA Learning Department as a Family Day Assistant, TCA Apprentice, and as a member of the Teen Creative Agency. His favorite pastime is finding stray animals and bringing them home. He currently has four cats and two dogs, but at one point had five cats and three dogs. While the cats do not create a good environment for his practice of creating fiber art, at this point he feels like it’s part of the process.
