I am working on a 3-D heart for an altar/installation in honor of René Yáñez. Installation at SOMArts begins this Friday. Below are three events where you can come and see (and sit in) this heart when it is done! I am very excited to see all the art by dozens of artists who will be participating in this very special exhibition. ¡René presente!
