VIVA Mission Cultural Center! My first Day of the Dead
The Mission Cultural Center in San Fransisco CA is the place where I was first exposed to the Day of the Dead.
I was invited in 1986 to participate in an exhibition that was called "Rooms for the Dead". Each of 25 artists were invited to create an artwork inspired by the traditional Dia de los Muertos alters.
I see on their website that this has become a tradition at the center.
