Samuel Rodriguez Oakland Museum Wall for Dia De Los Muertos

This is 1 of 2 walls that are being painted by Sam Rodriguez for the annual Dia De Los Muertos exhibit which opens this fall.

The title of this piece is Tree of Life and Death. It's inspired by Life Cycles as defined in science and a modern interpretation of pre-conquest, Dia De Los Muertos and buddhist images. Life Cycles basically apply to all things living and are characterized by change, life itself, growth and death. The tree motif is a reference to the civic logo of Oakland. Together with the curator of the exhibit Eduardo Pineda, Sam wanted to connect natural sciences to Dia De Los Muertos, and he feels they accomplished that in this piece. We will post more updates as soon as the piece is installed at OMCA.
