San Francisco observes Dia de los Muertos tonight with art exhibits, performances and the annual procession through the Mission District. We discuss the traditional Mexican holiday devoted to honoring the dead and celebrating life, which was also observed on Sunday with festivals in San Jose and Oakland. How do you memorialize the deceased?

Guests:

Rene Yanez, co-curator of "Illuminations: Dia de los Muertos 2011," an exhibition at SOMArts Cultural Center running through November 5th

Roberto Gutierrez Varea, associate professor of theater and director of the Center for Latino Studies in the Americas at the University of San Francisco
