Guerra's Coffee Company in Sunnyside and Jose Tapia will present The Dead Live On, an art exhibition with works by Pedro de Valdivia.
A special meet and greet with Valdivia will be held Friday, Nov. 20, from 5 to 11 p.m. at Guerra's Coffee Company. Free coffee and hors d'oeuvres will be available. Live music will be provided by Dominique Villajaro.
At the meet and greet there will be a canned food and frozen turkey drive to benefit the local food bank. People donating frozen turkeys will receive a free 16 oz. latte or mocha and a card for a free latte at their next visit. All tips collected during the meet and greet will also be donated to the local food bank.
The art exhibit will run from Nov. 20 to Dec. 17.
Valdivia's work reveals the ethnic diversity of the United States and his art has been influenced by Latin American, African and European traditions. These works are a combination of the Mexican Day of the Dead folk art and 1970's rock 'n roll psychedelic poster art.
Villajaro is a musician from Wapato who now resides in Seattle. His music is a combination of folk, jazz and acoustic guitar. Villajaro writes all of his own music.
