Ongoing Community Collaboration: Recordando Recuerdos

Recordando Recuerdos translates to remembering memories and will be a community-sourced piece honoring life, death, and loss. This community piece began in 2020 as the pandemic crisis experienced in our community became significantly more visible. It was an invitation and reminder of the power of collective mourning and care.

Recordando Recuerdos continues to grow and we invite you to share your story on a collaborative artwork made of vibrant colors with names of loved ones, objects, and moments lost that you wish to honor and remember.

Fill out the form and honor what you have lost here: Español | English

Recordando Recuerdos will be displayed at the Dia de los Muertos at Evergreen Cemetery on October 30 and later hung above the community ofrenda in the MAH atrium October 31, 2021-November 4, 2021.
