Lil’ Deb’s is featured in the new issue of Upstate Diary, with photographs by Guzman and an interview with Black and Perez-Gallardo by Connie and Russell’s son, Oskar Peacock.

Artists cooking for Artists: Participating in Post-Election Show at September Gallery. “We invited participants to write a message with the prompt “How can we best embody our future selves?” A note that we then steamed into tamales, and distributed at the end of the performance night. Everyone got to walk away with a fresh tamale and a thought shared by another person in the room.” Photos by Guzman. (Caption courtesy Upstate Diary.)
