Ricardo Soltero’s La Catrina

Copied from the Santa Monica City website: “Soltero’s iconic sculptures of La Catrina range up to 14 feet in height and welcome guests to the Promenade and Pier in brightly colored traditional Mexican attire inspired by Day of the Dead traditions and Mexican icons and embroidery. La Catrina was first born out of Mexican social satire and has become a well-known figure in celebration of the holiday.”


Marsha drove me down to see the exhibit. If it was crowded we were committed to leaving but happily it wasn’t crowded at all even considering it was Farmers Market day, and mask compliance was 100%. Still, the pandemic news is so terrible I worry for a few days after, every time I step out my door. I must think it’s worth it.
