Now in its 15th year, the Day of the Dead exhibition at SOMArts Cultural Center offers a visually dense and stimulating environment of elaborate, traditional altars and multi-dimensional art installations where creativity leads the way to meaningful reflection. Inspired by cherished relationships, current events, and a breadth of cultural traditions, Bay Area artists utilize multifaceted, contemporary creative practices in Visions at Twilight: Día de los Muertos 2014.
The exhibition unveiling, Friday, October 10, 6pm to 9pm, features live music by Rupa of Rupa & the April Fishes, San Francisco’s 2014 poet laureate Alejandro Murguía reading poems by Maya Angelou and Gabriel García Márquez, interactive installations and a Día de los Muertos-inspired artist market.

Insurrection, Connection & Community Through the Arts
SOMArts cultivates access to the arts within the Bay Area by collaborating with community-focused artists and organizations. Together, we engage the power of the arts to provoke just and fair inclusion, cultural respect, and civic participation.
Founded in 1979, SOMArts embraces the entire spectrum of arts practice and cultural identity, and it is beloved in San Francisco as a truly multicultural, community-built space where cutting-edge events and counterculture commingle with traditional art forms.
