Dia de los Muertos: A Cultural Legacy, Past, Present & Future; 44 years of Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG) promoting and organizing one of the most popular Día de los Muertos events in Los Angeles and perhaps the oldest Day of the Dead commemoration in the country. This program is unique in that it provides the community with a season of activities from August to November, to celebrate and prepare for Día de los Muertos.
An accompanying exhibition is part of the Getty Foundation Initiative Pacific Standard Time (PST) LA/LA and co-curated by co-curated by Linda Vallejo and Dr. Betty Brown (Emeritus Professor of Art History, California State University Northridge). The exhibition will include a full color catalog with essays by project historians Dr. Betty Ann Brown, Dr. Karen Mary Davalos (Professor of Chicana/o Studies, Loyola Marymount University), Marietta Bernstorff and Rose Salseda.
