Description

Come join us for a guided tour of Self Help Graphics' Getty Pacific Standard Time LA/LA exhibition, Día de los Muertos: A Cultural Legacy, Past, Present, and Future with Edgar & Norma Coronado. Each tour will be led by a guest artist and accompanied by our team of Youth Ambassadors.

The exhibition is part of Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative and features three Día de los Muertos ofrendas (offerings) from the Past, Present and Future by Master Altarista, Ofelia Esparza (past), San Diego-based artist Gerardo Acamonchi Yepiz (present) and Marcus Kuiland-Nazario (future); as well as a select number of Día de los Muertos prints, photographs and ephemera from across the four-decade history of SHG’s Día de los Muertos celebrations.

Tours will be given on the following dates, artists to be announced shortly.

  • January 11th with Luis-Genaro Garcia
  • January 25th with Norma & Edgar Coronado
  • February 8th
  • February 10th with Leo Limon
  • February 23th with Mari Cardenas & Milton Jurado
  • February 24th


Norma & Edgar Coronado grew up in creative families who simply improvised as life happened. As a family, they continued to nurture the seeds of creativity for several years each October by volunteering with Self Help Graphics & Art in preparation for the annual Dia de los Muertos community event, where they first learned to use paper mache with William Acedo & Ezria Torres. It is through this experience at SHG&A, that they have come to realize that creative expression is an important means to connect to their origins, to nourish their hearts, minds and lives by creating to express that which is meaningful to them and the community.


Tours are free. If you are interested in attending, we kindly ask that you please RSVP.
