Death Cafe

A worldwide, volunteer-based phenomenon, Death Cafe encourages people to share food, drink, and small-group conversation about death and dying in a comfortable setting free of agenda or ideology. After the discussion hosted by Death Cafe organizer Lizzy Miles, participants will be invited to an optional tour of the current exhibition on view at the Wex, HERE: Ann Hamilton, Jenny Holzer, Maya Lin.

Please note: this is an open discussion group for guests over 18 years of age and not an educational program or grief support group. Complimentary refreshments will be served.
