Laurie Zuckerman presents a free gallery talk and tour of her one-woman altar exhibition at the Loveland Museum entitled, Memento Mori: Deconstruction of the Nuclear Family, on Thursday evening, September 24 in the Main Gallery. This unique exhibit includes complex altar installations, Mexican Diá de los Muertos ofrendas, ancestor altars, and intricate memory jugs commemorating her "nuclear family" in the 1950s. The show opened August 29 and continues through November 1, 2009.
