Art Twistory: The Mourning Commute

  • Louden Nelson Community Center 301 Center Street Santa Cruz, CA, 95060 United States (map)


Humans around the globe have a long and rich history of roadside memorial tributes, with widely varying styles and traditions.  The photographic presentation discusses the social, religious, legal, and practical aspects of the memorials' forms and functions, the very presence of which is often controversial.  The historical perspective is complemented by the personal story of nine memorials on one short stretch of road near Santa Cruz, California. 

Cost: $10 donation appreciated, $5 students and seniors.  No reservations necessary.  (About Art Twistory)
