This amazing artwork created by Landis Blair for our Edward Gorey homage at Boston Death Salon. What is Death Salon you ask? Well, it began as a simple question: How can we get the far-flung founding members of The Order of the Good Death together in one place? The conversation blossomed into what would become Death Salon.
We are anxious to collaborate with each other to launch death and dying into the future. Even more, we want to share our work with a wider audience and hear what you think. Death Salon allows that sharing to happen, providing us the opportunity to offer talks and events that are open to the public.
