Join us for a public reception for the exhibition, Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead: A Cultural Legacy, Past, Present, and Future. A presentation by Betty Avila, Co-Director of Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG), Los Angeles, begins at 5:30pm. Avila will give an overview of the 50-year history of Day of the Dead at SHG, the people and artists involved, and will discuss how this celebration’s continued ripple effects are deeply rooted in community-based practices, despite the mass commercialization of the holiday. The event is free, catered, and open to all.
