SAY Sí presents "Stories Seldom Told: More Than Life"
With the annual "Stories Seldom Told" exhibition, student-artists collaboratively create multidisciplinary art installations exploring a social issue they feel aren't being addressed in their everyday lives. This year, youth-artists have chosen to explore the many facets of death that they have faced and may face in their lives. Artists began with the realization that death is a topic that is often ignored, frowned upon and avoided completely. In an effort to destigmatize the topic, youth are exploring concepts like the process of grief, burial rituals in different cultures, eco-friendly burial processes, critical views of the funeral industry, the continuity of life after death and the significance of personal memorial celebrations.
