Día de Los Muertos

The Web: A Community Altar

“The Web” was conceived by Lauren Gucik as a participatory altar for her mother, Mary Gucik, at the 2008 Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration that takes place annually at Garfield Park in San Francisco. This video is from The Web’s third incarnation on November 2nd, 2010. Supplying paper and markers, the web invited passers-by to contribute letters, drawings, pictures, and mementos to honor their loved ones.
