Day of the Dead/Día de Los Muertos: Celebrating Icons of Queer Latinx Art


To celebrate the lives of three incandescent Forging Territories artists who are no longer living, SDAI will ask visitors to help honor their memory by creating artwork altars/altares. The interactive participatory experience has the goal of connecting the living to deceased queer Latinx artists by placing offerings and mementos on the altares. In doing so, visitors will be sharing in the cultural and spiritual traditions of Dia de Los Muertos. All are welcome to participate in this collective experience of honoring those who have passed, by celebrating their creative lives.

This is a free event and traditional Mexican pastries and beverages will be served.
