This exhibit, which was featured at ASM September 2022 - February 2023, celebrated both private and public practices and traditions of caregiving, grieving, memorializing, and preparing and planning for end of life. Videos, images, stories, and installations invited viewers to contemplate their own relationship with, and communal practices around, death and dying.

The content of the exhibit is now encapsulated in a 51-page booklet, which you can download to revisit, or experience for the fist time.
