SOMArts’ beloved Día de los Muertos curator and pioneer of the Chicano arts movement, Rene Yanez, passed away on May 29, leaving a huge hole in the hearts of many in the Bay Area.
To offer space to grieve together and share memories of René’s unparalleled work in the community, SOMArts will host a memorial with René’s friends and family members on Sunday, July 8 from 1:00–4:00 pm.
All are welcome to honor René at this community memorial with performance tributes, refreshments, and a community altar. René’s artwork will be on view, and the Great Tortilla Conspiracy will print René-themed tortillas for guests.
Please bring memories to share and items to contribute to the altar.
