On Saturday, May 20 artist Sanithna Phansavanh's life-sized murals inspired by the Greek myth of Persephone will be installed throughout Oakland Cemetery's Victorian gardens. According to mythology Hades, god of the underworld, kidnapped Persephone to be his queen. Once a year – in spring – Persephone was permitted to visit the land of the living, and upon her return flowers bloomed. Improvisational music and movement collective Flight of Swallows will provide musical and dance accompaniment to Phansavanh’s work throughout the evening, with seven performances at Oakland Cemetery’s North Public Grounds.
