The Beat of Life is an altar installation presented by Green Artists International at the new office of Senator Kevin de Leon at 1808 Sunset Blvd. in Echo Park. This tradicional artwork is created by Kathleen Roman, honoring the memories of her father and brother: master drummer icon Henry Roman, and percussionist Kenny Roman.
Life goes on like the drum beat of our hearts, and wen the sound of the drum stop, we still listen to it in the echos of our memories. No one is really gone as far as one memory prevails; and that is what Day of the Death is all about.
