Two Skulls, Bronze, 2018
Ever think about what happens when you die? Ever wonder about mortality? How do you want to be buried? Or remembered?
Come join us for yet another organic conversation around death, dying, life, and living. This is not a presentation, nor is this directed in any way. We will break up into small groups and dive deep into the questions and ideas that arise surrounding end of life.
7pm is a loose start time this time around as there is another event Christin is facilitating at Lakewood Cemetery that evening which ends at 6. See post about that event and make it an evening of death and ritual and community.
Note: Death and dying, like anything, do not fit into a pretty package to be dissected and understood. Nor is everyone's reaction or place along the continuum of acceptance the same. When creating a forum for discussion around this topic, it can get tricky. After hosting this event for over a year now, we have seen how some groups enjoy witty banter and humor, while others prefer quiet conversation that centers around past experiences and even grief. When walking into a Death Cafe, you do not know the intention of the person sitting next to you, and therefore, you could be in completely different head spaces. Please be aware that although this conversation is both sacred, and light, depending on where you are at with the experience, this forum is organic and attendees are encouraged to keep an open mind and heart with a willingness to go wherever the night and conversation takes us. It is our intention, as weird as it may sound, to make this event as enjoyable for everyone as possible.
The exhibition opens November 1, 2019 and runs through November 30, 2019. Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday from 3pm-8pm or by appointment.
