Join us for the closing reception of this year’s Día de Los Muertos exhibition on Friday, November 4, 6–9 PM PST, $10 suggested donation! This can’t-miss event features musical performances by Anaís Azul and Joyous, and Day of the Dead vendor market.

Curated by Rio Yañez and Anaís Azul, To Love and Be Loved in Return: Día de Los Muertos 2022 exemplifies how the love between us and our dead continue to help us to navigate the world.

This year’s exhibition is dedicated to Japanese American poet and educator Janice Mirikitani who advocated for the City’s historically marginalized communities. She was the San Francisco poet laureate from 2000–2002 and she has spent nearly 60 years with Glide Foundation, a “radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization”.
