Farewell, Gabo
Colombian Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez died at his Mexico City home on Thursday. He was 87.
García Márquez lived the majority of his adult life in Mexico after first moving there in 1961 while in political exile. It is said that he received the inspiration for his masterpiece, “100 Years of Solitude,” while driving to Acapulco in 1965.
Gabo, as he was affectionately known, lived a storied life, making friends with everyone from Fidel Castro to Bill Clinton. It was, in fact, his relationship with Castro that had him banned from entering the United States for more than thirty years.
Gabriel García Márquez’s remains were cremated in a private ceremony last night. A family spokesman said in a statement that an official memorial will be held at Mexico’s Palacio de Bellas Artes on April 21.

‘Last Supper of Chicano Heroes’ by José Antonio Burciaga 
Caza Zapata Dining Hall Stanford University Palo Alto, California
Poet, writer and painter José Antonio Burciaga was a residential fellow at Stanford’s Chicano-themed dorm Casa Zapata when he began painting murals on its walls reflecting the Mexican American experience.
“As part of the movement that came out of the civil rights movement, there was this whole artistic component that was all about forging a Mexican American identity,” Casa Zapata alum Chris González Clarke told the Stanford Daily.
Burciaga’s now famous mural was the result of a survey that asked students and community members to list the 13 most important figures in the Mexican community.
Along with the well known faces of Zapata, Juárez and Kahlo are those of local freedom fighters Joaquín Murrieta and Tiburcio Vásquez. Also included are the faces of some of Casa Zapata’s dining hall staff. A fitting tribute to “all those who died, scrubbed floors, wept and fought for us.”
