Remembering Luis Cervantes (Nov. 1, 1929 - Apr. 27, 2005)

There will be a Public Memorial Ceremony Celebration Remembering "Visionary" Visual Artist, Luís Cervantes in San Francisco this Sunday, June 12 at 2pm at The Precita Valley Community Center, 534 Precita Ave (across from Precita Park near Chavez & Folsom in the Mission) at 2 pm. Everyone invited. (Donations accepted.) Join the Cervantes family, Precita Eyes Muralists, and friends in this tribute to the Father of Art in the Mission.

Here are just a couple of comments written in my book, May Day, when we bid my father nos vemos on his journey outside the spiral. These are comments from just two of the artists who will be joining us for the dance of another day in the Spiral of Life. Add your own. And, come help us celebrate Suaro's birthday, his second youngest son, as we remember 81 years of grace, truth, vision and laughter. Art, poetry, music, video, talk-story, ceremony, and real life featured as we practice what he taught: living life to the fullest at the moment in the moment - with vitality, lightness, and doing that "inner thing, whatever it is" with heart.

See you there. See.

Remembering Luís Cervantes

Luis Cervantes
a mixture of grits and love
Humility and Pride
you were my mentor
and lightened the pad
not so long ago
now you are on the path
and you gave me the
inner strength
to be an artist

~Henry Sultan

En honor de tu papá, Luis, Lorna —

te doy un corazon lleno de
luz, relampago y
Que Viva

~Juana Alicia
