Laurie Beth Zuckerman's Homage to Old Mexico altar
at The Longmont Museum and Cultural Center, 2011
is profiled in a video interview with education curator, Jill Overlie. Ms. Overlie discusses both my altar and my involvement with their annual Day of the Dead festival of altars. This video appears on "Around Town" The Longmont Channel in conjunction with the Museum's popular community exhibition that runs from October 1 through November 6, 2011.
The Museum is receiving lots of lovely comments from visitors about the altars and the exhibit. So far, they have had approximately 800 people from school groups and some adult groups visiting the Day of the Dead exhibit on self-guided tours. This does not include the regular visitation for this exhibit, which is free to the public. The upcoming festive Family Day Celebration on October 29 from 10am–5pm will host thousands of visitors. I will be at the museum all day to talk with families and share the meaning of my own altar.
