Mujeres Mutantes (MM) is an all-woman Latinx art collective with roots all across Chicago’s South and West Sides. MM was founded in 2012 by Naomi Martinez and Delilah Salgado after years of dialog and collaborations, some dating back to 1995. The group’s initial goal was to be a platform for collaborations and exhibitions with other like-minded women who were already working independently to challenge the status quo in the art community. MM is an eclectic group of multidisciplinary artists. They are local business owners, mothers, and educators who believe that public art nurtures community and that creative expression is crucial to our self-actualization. Today, MM’s mission is to create opportunities to empower other women to make art, share stories, and promote art as a healing practice for communities affected by street violence and domestic abuse.
