MCCLA Window Altars

Day of the Dead 2018

Denhi Donis invited me to collaborate with her on the two window altars at MCCLA in San Francisco. 


"Families Belong Together" is dedicated to migrant children around the world, including Alan Kurdi and Mariee Juárez.





























































"Unity Community" is in honor of many San Francisco activists/leaders who have passed away.




























We dedicate this altar to:

Alejandro “Alex” Nieto 

Alexis Rivera

Alfonso Texidor 

Aurora Grajeda

Carlos Gilberto Aceituno 

Carlos Gutiérrez

Earl Gilman 

Eric Quezada

Francisco Alarcón

Juanita Rieloff

LeRoy King 

MamaCoAtl Chantiko

Michael Roman

Quique Dávila 

René Yáñez

Virginia Ramos “The Tamales Lady”

…and to so many other leaders 

in our community 

who continue to guide us, 

feed our souls 

and support us 

in our fight 

to make this 

a more just 

and beautiful world.

On November 2, 2018 there were two events in and around MCCLA for Day of the Dead:

  • MCCLA Day of the Dead 2018: Vuelo de los Ancestros

  • SF Día de los Muertos Procession and Festival of Altars 2018
