I-Create teen fellows from Working Classroom, teaching artists Carlos Gabladon, and Eric J Garcia, in collaboration with Three Sisters Kitchen have all come together for a Dia de los Muertos art installation. This installation includes vinyl stickers, traditional papel picado and projection mapped projections will bring to light forgotten struggles of water contamination that still affects all of us every time we take a drink.

Using traditional and nontraditional papel picado, the fellows were challenged to create imagery based on their investigations of water crisis happening all around us. From Flint, Michigan to the Navajo Nation, our precious but overlooked resource of water is under attack.  This will be an opportunity to honor those who have lost their lives, while creating dialogue around where to go from here.
