This exhibit shares stories and traditions that were documented as part of the Southwest Folklife Alliance's End of Life: Continuum project supported by the Arizona End of Life Care Partnership with funds from the David and Lura Lovell Foundation. It celebrates both private and public practices and traditions of caregiving, grieving, memorializing, and preparing and planning for end of life. With videos, images, stories, installations and interactions, it invites viewers to contemplate their own relationship with and communal practices around death and dying.
