About The Event
Walter Anderson was deeply aware of the cycles of loss, resilience, and rebirth in nature, especially through the lens of Horn Island. In many of Anderson’s works from the island, he records the beauty of life and reverence for death. Artist and Memphis, Tennessee native, Frank Estrada, has worked with these same concepts in his artistic career as a printmaker.
Estrada leads a one-day workshop using various media, predominantly block prints, to create a community ofrenda–or altar–honoring culture, community, and the natural world. The workshop will be held in the Museum's Coastal Learning Garden (just out front). The completed ofrenda will be displayed in the Museum lobby for public viewing and participation.
