Calling on the Spirits to Face the Future - Dia de los Muertos, SOMArts, San Francisco

  • I'm one of forty artists who will be creating an altar installation in honor of those that have passed on as well as using their artistic interpretations on the state of life, living and politics in the present day world.

    My installation, called Healing Embrace, will be in honor of my dad, Jake Rodriguez who's strong presence I felt during my 8 month treatment of Leukemia and who's guidance I feel now in everyday of living.

    Life is a gift and I'm happy to be living it!
