Annual Day of the Dead Altar Show at SomArts

Lia Tealdi

Every year SomArts puts up a wonderful show of altar art installations for Dia de los Muertos. This year they really outdid themselves with a larger installation. Lots of great altars and some that lacked much creativity – but overall the good ones really cancel out the bad – the show is a must see. I would give yourself at least a full hour to absorb all the works. They even have a black light room with lots of day-glo art, a fun place to sit down and create some of your own. (Sugar skull images to color are provided).
