I've been working collectively with an amazing team of dedicated friends on creating works of art this year. Tonight, one of our projects will be unveiled to the public.
Every October, SOMArts Gallery puts together a Day of the Dead exhibit - local artists create altars to show respect to and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have passed.
This year, the theme of the exhibit is "Illuminations."
Since March of this year, a group of us in the bike community has been collaborating on a concept to respect the life of a fellow bike friend. As of tonight, we can share our hard work and creative vision with you. It's an altar named life, energy: con sonrisas.
Please come to SOMArts Gallery over the next month to experience our altar and those of many other talented Bay Area artists. More info about the opening here. Exhibit runs through Nov. 5, 2011.
