"Semillas" at Chicago's National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture is landscape artist Raul Ortiz Bonilla’s first solo art exhibition, which focuses on the seeds, or dots, he paints to visualize his memories of Puerto Rico and what it means to be an immigrant.
Bonilla immigrated to Chicago in his early twenties.
“I never feel like I’m completely here. My soul is still on the island," he explained. “I’m a productive member of society here, but my soul can hopefully go back."
