Join Artist-In-Residence Resa Blatman for a conversation on Death in Asa Gray Garden

May 17, 2023

Join Mount Auburn’s Artist-in-Residence Resa Blatman for an informal conversation about death. These chats are meant to be open and thoughtful, and as deep and exploratory as one would like to go. Resa is not a therapist, but rather a visual artist who is curious about our futures after death. Where do we go? What does the universe have in store for us? Is there love and joy after death? Resa will be here for three hours on the dates listed and welcomes visitors to sit and speak with her one-on-one in the Asa Gray Garden. No Appointment Needed – Drop in only. These conversations will not be recorded.

Friday, May 26th: noon – 3 pm
Saturday, May 27th: noon – 3 pm
Sunday, May 28th: noon – 2 pm

Friday, June 2nd: noon – 2 pm
Saturday, June 3rd: noon – 2 pm
