LAURIE BETH ZUCKERMAN TO BE ALTARMAKER-IN-RESIDENCE FOR LONGMONT MUSEUM'S DAY OF THE DEAD CELEBRATION IN COLORADO

Laurie Beth Zuckerman in front of her "Piesafe Altar"
As the Altarmaker-in Residence, Laurie Beth Zuckerman will be creating a new Day of the Dead altar installation for the Longmont Museum's 11th annual celebration and exhibit of Diá de los Muertos altars and folk art. Hope you can make it to the museum to watch me construct my altar the first week of October, or listen to my talk about my "Homage to Old Mexico" ofrenda and how Mexican culture have influenced my work. Longmont's website, reprinted below, has the all the details and dates for my residency and gallery talk at the museum.

What a busy and exciting time you have ahead of you, Laurie. I look forward to seeing the finished product. Perhaps you will be posting "in progress" photos occasionally???

Wish I lived closer to you so I could see your work in person. So inspiring and wonderful.

hi Laurie,
I'm a bit confused, I am going to the opening reception for the annual Dia de los Muertos exhibit is this Friday but it sounds like you will not be building your altar until Sat.

Was hoping to meet you...
