EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2010

THE STORY:

SOMArts is celebrating its 12th annual Día de los Muertos exhibition. Each year, we exhibit the work of more than 100 artists, ranging from groups of schoolchildren to established professional artists. In past years, more than 50 Bay Area public and private school classrooms have visited SOMArts, and this year we have expanded the number of tours and workshops we are offering to meet growing demand.

Co-curators Rene and Rio Yañez were featured in a recent San Francisco Bay Guardian article that praised their vision in creating an exhibition that is intergenerational, accessible, passionate and political—paying homage to cultural tradition while also reflecting the multifaceted visions of San Francisco through a saturated visual experience.

Like all organizations, SOMArts faces rising costs and diminishing resources. This year, we have been told that we need to pay property insurance, an unexpected cost of $6,300. In addition, a major funder is holding $10,000 of grant funding in “reserve,” which may be cut at mid-year.

To help ensure that SOMArts remains a strong and sustainable resource, we are holding our first ever 8,000 Bones Campaign. Our goal is to raise $8,000 and help fund Día de los Muertos programming. SOMArts’ Board of Directors has made a substantial contribution to start us off, but we hope you will make a donation to support this beloved annual event.
