Now in its 19th year, SOMArts’ Día de Los Muertos exhibition is one of the most internationally diverse Day of the Dead celebrations in the United States.

Honoring our Ancestors by Fighting for the Future is dedicated to the Padrino of the Mission and beloved Dia de los Muertos co–curator, René Yañez. Yañez was crucial in the formation of Chicanx visual aesthetics and as a founding member of Galeria de la Raza, created spaces that centered contemporary Latinx perspectives.

Since 1999, Yañez curated the Dia de los Muertos exhibitions at SOMArts Cultural Center and we celebrate his life, legacy, and impact on generations to come.
