La Llorona with her haunting wind-voice is reported to be seen at every river, lake, arroyo, ocean, muddy wash, etc., in places where Mexican Americans live. . . .La Llorona is calling for her lost children. . . . .Water is a place to heal, water gives birth.” Vibiana Aparico-Chamberlin invited the public to add names of the deceased to her altar honoring slain children and mothers. Aparicio-Chamberlin is a painter, printmaker and altarista who has exhibited widely.

 

Jacquelyn Morie used driftwood and found objecs from the river’s detritus in making a series of water spirits (naiads, undines, nixies, asparas) and dryads (tree-dwelling nymphs). Morie has been an artist all her life.

 

Nicholas Fedak II evoked Los Angeles River Ghosts with his suspension of images from the past mounted along the bridge above the water and by scattering rose petals on the bank below. Fedak is a photograher and installation artist who teaches at East L.A. College.
