Since its beginning in 2014, the Rituals of Commemoration project honors unarmed Black individuals killed by police and security guards across the United States. The project serves as a tool for mourning, making meaningful connections, and building understanding while maintaining a sense of connection with those whom we have lost. Artist Rosa Naday Garmendia will lead participants in a ritualistic process of stenciling and spray painting bricks in a way that centers each individual’s name and year of death. The resulting bricks will be arranged into an art installation as part of the exhibition, The Future Isn’t What It Used To Be, opening Jan. 27 at UMOCA.
