Huaxtec was invited this year to be part of the Day of the Dead Exhibit  opening celebration at the Oakland Museum of art to do chalk pieces on the sidewalk in front of the museum. About 50 of us showed up Sunday morning, incuding youth from Huaxtec, Visual Element, Youth Brigade and UPA, everybdy took a square on the sidewalk with a image to reproduce. The process was really cool, people who don’t usually make art were able to creat some really amazing pieces. With a stencil that melanie and i cut, we teamed up with Visual elment to do a stencil rendition of Posada’s Catrina for the center piece. Around the image of la Catrina, Visual Element chalked “Celebrando Vida Y Muerte” in graffiti style lettering.
