Let’s honor those we have lost and embrace community as we move towards healing in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
About the Exhibition:
In a year that saw an unprecedented number of deaths due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Black and Brown communities, including Native communities, suffered disproportionately high mortality rates, in part due to economic and cultural systematic racism, including the prevalence of multi-generational families living together in a single household. Thanks to the efficacy of the several vaccines, we now face the important undertaking of healing, not just physically from the disease, but also healing from the emotional pain of loss as we all grieve. Through this exhibition, our community will experience the restorative ways of processing grief through both traditional and modern artistic and literary public remembrances and discussions. This exhibition and the corresponding programming, including an altar by Rosa Portillo, are designed to aid the community in embracing the process of mourning and coming to terms with the aftermath of COVID-19, ultimately generating joy and a celebration of life.
