We Are San Francisco at Somarts, San Francisco

We Are San Francisco at Somarts Dia de los Muertos

We are San Francisco ~ Somos San Francisco

Somarts San Francisco installation for 2014

Somarts is celebrating 2014 Dia de los Muertos with the theme, Visions at Twilight.  

“Visions at Twilight is evocative of the loss of culture and people being felt in the Bay Area now. This year the exhibition is dedicated to celebrated literary artists and activists Maya Angelou and Gabriel Garcia-Marquez, radio DJ Chata Gutierrez, and to musician and performer Holly Schneider."

My contribution, 
We Are San Francisco is highlighted by a large, handmade snake, shedding it's skin. I created the snake to represent the people of San Francisco, weathering the changes in our city, 
facing a renewal, rebirth and unification of 
our diverse values and histories.  Despite gentrification, whether we remain physically or emotionally a part of this city, I believe our diverse values and culture remains.

The opening of this wonderful exhibit is this Friday, October 10, from 6 to 9pm at Somarts.


Exhibition unveiling features live music by Rupa, interactive installations and Día de los Muertos inspired artist market on Friday, October 10, 6–9pm. $12–15 sliding scale
click here to purchase tickets

Exhibition on view Saturday, October 11–Saturday, November 8, 2014. Extended gallery hours: Tuesday–Friday, 12–7pm, Saturday 11am–5pm, Sunday, 11am–3pm.

 934 Brannan St. (between 8th & 9th)

I'll be hanging out near my snake so hope you can stop by the opening. If opening doesn't work for you, the exhibit is open until November 8th and there is no charge.

Dia de los Muertos at Somarts is always a beautiful, innovative event. If you can, take the time to come explore the work of many creative hands interpreting the most heartfelt celebration of Dia de los Muertos.
