Guillermo Delgado

Academic Specialist in Community & Socially Engaged Arts

Guillermo Delgado is a community artist with a history of art creation and teaching since 1994. He shares his passion for art, literacy, and writing with children, college students, adults, and educators wherever he goes, engaging them in the creation of their own interdisciplinary work as well as helping to construct a curriculum that infuses the arts into the academic and civic engagement experience. Exhibition of his art includes venues such as the National Museum of Mexican Art, Museum of Science and Industry, The School of the Art Institute’s Betty Rymer Gallery, Chicago History Museum, Noyes Cultural Arts Center in Evanston IL, Garrett Evangelical School of Northwestern University, Heard Museum in Phoenix, Mexican Museum in San Francisco, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Elmhurst College, and Michigan State University.

Guillermo Delgado started his art career as a self-taught printmaker and painter, but in 2013 he completed and earned a Masters of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts. He is passionate about the power of poetry and the haiku tradition and incorporates it with his artistic practice. In Spring 2012, he collaborated with North Branch Projects—a community bookbinding facility in Chicago, and wrote a haiku-a-day for 100 days. Each haiku was displayed in their storefront window for the public to see and read daily. Since then, Guillermo has continued to write a daily haiku and shares them on his haiku blog. Currently, Guillermo teaches community arts courses at the RCAH. Other arts organizations that Guillermo has worked with include Columbia College, Marwen, Argo High School, and the Festival of the Arts at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico.
