Juan Colon born in Caguas, Puerto Rico raised in Logan Square, Chicago IL. He had a passion for art and photography from the day he was born. His keen eye and amazing talent won him awards from numerous community organizations in Chicago starting at a young age. He was inspired to follow his dreams and attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He then became an educator at Pulaski International School of Chicago to teach and inspire children to see all of the beauty that exists in our world. His art not only reflected his love of his Latino culture but it also captured the beauty that exists in everyday life. We should all be so lucky to see the world through Juan's eyes.. His love and creativity will live on forever through the young minds he touched and those who will benefit from this wonderful award - The 2017 Youth Empowering Strategies Roberto Clemente Legacy Award.
