We hoped this day would never come … but it’s true—Honoring Revolution With Visions of Healing: Día de los Muertos 2010 at SOMArts closes on Saturday. If you haven’t yet seen the “muerto rider,” Lea Tialdi and Bjorn Heinbach’s Sideshow of Sin, the mermaid, the ghost bike, or the many video installations and traditional altars honoring the dead, this is your Last Chance. Come celebrate with Rene and Rio Yañez, the many talented artists and the SOMArts crew one last time. For more info, or to purchase tickets in advance, visit http://muertos.eventbrite.com.
