Leading up to Saturday folks have been writing tributes in words and symbols on the large mobile mural as part of the Marigold Mural Project.
On Saturday you can still add the names of your family members, friends or pets that have passed.
Artistic expressions of devotion and honoring loved ones can be seen in the arresting Amorosa Memoria altar at Tlaquepaque North, beautifully arranged by Mountain High Flowers. Be sure to check it out! Darius Lux Duo, pm, Patio de las Campanas. Violinist Teresa Joy, pm, Patio del Norte.
David Merino Duo, pm, Tlaquepaque North. With his unique gypsy-style world music sound and mix of Mediterranean influences, David brings it! Eric Miller, pm, in the Chapel.
