We celebrate Day of the Dead through the perspective of the living world, and don’t often think about Day of the Dead through the experiences of those from the other side. How do the Muertos prepare to walk amongst the living to rejoice the love, tears, and laughter that at one point gave life to their souls? Una Cita con La Vida is a representation of how the dead prepare for dia de los muertos through the side of the underworld. En este Día de los Muertos, l@s Almas se preparan para una cita con la vida. – Luis-Genaro Garcia
