Day of the Dead at Tacoma Art Museum draws 4000 visitors to closing ceremony

Fulgencio was honored to lead a team of young people, fellow artists and community volunteers in the creation of his 9th sand painting for TAM's annual celebration of Day of the Dead, held November 3rd, 2013.
TAM will be expanding, after recently breaking ground on a new wing. Fulgencio's design included the footsteps of the dead, (at the far end of the tapete), representing TAM's stepping out into new areas and "going places".  

Remembering those who have passed away @ SAM
