SEATTLE, ABAD & THE GRATEFUL DEAD 
The A Book About Death exhibition opened in Seattle on 11.11.11 to a big crowd and the iconic sounds of The Grateful Dead, thanks to both curator Kathleen McHugh and gallery owner Almendra Sandoval.
More than 110 works were received by the gallery and on Saturday November 19, 2011 (beginning at 5 PM local time), about a half dozen films and videos will be shown in the gallery along with a reading and literary event with Herb Sundvall.
About the opening, Kathleen (pictured right, with Herb Sundvall and friend) writes: "On the night of the opening a group of people came in because they saw a flyer on a telephone pole. They were familiar with A Book About Death and had wanted it to come to Seattle. Many people in the crowd came down from Victoria, British Columbia thanks to Dame Mailarta and her friend "Snappy." They spent a couple of nights in Seattle and brought both friends and strangers they had met to the show. They are writing and talking about the show in Victoria now. It was a great suprise. All in all a great evening."
