As part of Dia de los Muertos SOMArts asked local artists to erect large-scale altars. Artist Martha Rodriguez focused on her father, Jacob Rodriguez, an aspiring singer, in his early twenties. The butterfly carries spirits of the deceased to the afterlife.
Rodriguez: "One month before I was diagnosed with Leukemia in October 2010, I felt the presence of my father, who had passed away nine years earlier. It was odd that after years of being gone, he suddenly returned to me. The feeling of his presence came in the form of sharing the same space. I went about doing my artwork and tasks and took him with me." (Catherine Borgeson/KQED)
