Every Día de Los Muertos exhibition is dedicated to community members and artists whose legacy has inspired generations and galvanized movements. 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”. Longtime exhibiting artist and community member Beth Benson will be creating an altar in her honor.
