Come join us for a guided tour of Self Help Graphics' Getty Pacific Standard Time LA/LA exhibition, Día de los Muertos: A Cultural Legacy, Past, Present, and Future with Luis-Genaro Garcia. Each tour will be led by a guest artist and accompanied by our team of Youth Ambassadors.

The exhibition is part of Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative and features three Día de los Muertos ofrendas (offerings) from the Past, Present and Future by Master Altarista, Ofelia Esparza (past), San Diego-based artist Gerardo Acamonchi Yepiz (present) and Marcus Kuiland-Nazario (future); as well as a select number of Día de los Muertos prints, photographs and ephemera from across the four-decade history of SHG’s Día de los Muertos celebrations.

Luis-Genaro Garcia is the artist of SHG's 2014 Día de los Muertos Commemorative Serigraph Print. Luis-Genaro is an artist and high school art teacher in South Central Los Angeles currently pursuing a PhD in education at Claremont Graduate University. He draws from his upbringing of growing up in a single parent household and schooling experiences to challenge traditional approaches to art education. These experiences have influenced him to teach at his alma mater, Thomas Jefferson high school.

Tours are free. If you are interested in attending, we kindly ask that you please RSVP.
