Art exhibition at Alemany Library celebrates diversity

The Opening Reception for the "El Dia De Los Muertos/The Day Of The Dead" exhibition was October 17 in the Alemany Library foyer at Dominican.

The exhibit, which celebrates diversity on campus, is on display in the Community Gallery on the second floor of Alemany Library during normal business hours through January 30, 2014.

Among noted local, regional, national and international artists selected to participate in the exhibition are Julie-Anne Cosgrove, Jaime Crespo, John Fadeff, Jason Gonzalez, Andrea Speer Hibbard, Jennifer Hirshfield, Walid Khalaf, Molly Perez, Yvette Ramos and Raul del Rio.

Guest curators are Nina Croner and Israel Escudero.

The exhibit, a multicultural perspective on life and death, is portrayed with affection and humor.  The exhibit provides an opportunity for the Dominican community to connect to personal histories via this cross-cultural ritual, which honors loved ones who have died and acknowledges death as a part of life.
