We celebrate Day of the Dead through the perspective of the living world, and don't often think about Day of the Dead through the experiences of those from the other side. How do the Muertos prepare to walk amongst the living to rejoice the love, tears, and laughter that at one point gave life to their souls? Una Cita con La Vida is a representation of how the dead prepare for dia de los muertos through the side of the underworld. En este Día de los Muertos, l@s Almas se preparan para una cita con la vida. - Luis-Genaro Garcia

Reflejos y Regalos de East Los captures the Boyle Heights/East Los Angeles community through impromptu portraits of current community members and the creation of specific public installations at each of the locations. Reflejos y Regalos de East Los encourages community participation in art and strengthens the ties of the East Side community, while reflecting our relationship to one another and our community in new ways.
