About the Event

Join us for an talk with local artists Michael Possert and Sandi “Mama” Romero.

This activity takes place at the Autry's Historic Southwest Museum Mt. Washington Campus, located at 234 Museum Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90065.

Remembrance, the Faces and Places is a pop-up exhibition from the Arroyo Arts Collective that asks local artists to explore a deepened understanding of Halloween, Día de los Muertos, and all rituals, historically and worldwide, associated with how we grieve, how we continue to love, and how we go on in the face of loss.

Twenty artists have been invited to create altars in the niche spaces along both sides of the buildings’ famed portal tunnel, which originally housed dioramas illustrating various ways of Native American life. A second group of artists will display wall art upstairs in Sprague Hall.

Remembrance, The Faces and Places is presented by the Arroyo Arts Collective in partnership with Avenue 50 Studio and Rock Rose Gallery. Made possible in part through the generous support of the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, the Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council, the Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council, and the Autry.
