|A cemetery Guadalupe in Oaxaca's San Miguel Panteon|
Laurie Beth Zuckerman invites you to accompany artist and host, Rebecca Brooks to a world of colorful altars and cemetery nichos in the land of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. This adventure to Colonial Mexico is scheduled for December 10-19, 2013. Rebecca has invited me to teach a two-day Memory Nicho Workshop, an option for all who join Rebecca's Loving Lupita folk art tour, highlighting this ancient December 12 festival of La Virgen de Guadalupe.
By sharing my photos of altars dedicated to La Virgen de Guadalupe, the archetypal saint of Mexico, I hope to inspire you to join Rebecca, and myself on this unique adventure.
PLEASE visit Rebecca Brooks blog for Sunday's "Postcards from Paradise"for a taste of what she imagines for her December tour of San Miguel de Allende.
