Sparked by the Mexican Revolution of 1910, Chicago has seen a steady influx of Mexican immigrants throughout the 20th century. Today, the Pilsen neighborhood is home to a large segment of Chicago's Mexican population, as well as the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum. This museum organizes annual Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrations in the autumn.
