Día de Muertos - A Time to Grieve & Remember will features the work of Associate Professor Dianna Frid! Opening next Friday, September 10 through December 12, 2021, the exhibition pays tribute to and remembers the numerous individuals from Mexico and the U.S. who in the past two years have died from COVID-19. During the pandemic, many of us were heartbroken to be unable to spend time with our loved ones. As we are now able to gather, we join together to grieve and remember the ones we lost during these two years. The collective act of mourning is a fundamental aspect of annual Day of the Dead commemorations, and offers a healing way to acknowledge, accept and bear the inevitable.
