Death in the Cougar Room. Seattle
By Greg Lundgren
On Saturday, August 24th, we hosted a lovely dinner at Vito’s (Seattle) titled Let’s Get Together and Talk About Death. It was one of several hundred dinners happening around the world, and the invention of provocateur Michael Hebb. Thank you all for coming out, sharing your ideas and very personal stories and helping create healthy and much needed conversation about the way we live and die.

Greg has authored two illustrated children’s books addressing death and the cemetery, and continues to design, collaborate and petition for a healthier approach towards our mortality and a broader conversation about art, death and design.
