Event Description

 A fun activity for families or for grandparents to do with grandchildren! Learn about the festival of Dia de Muertos from exploring our exhibition. The exhibition is a visual feast that combines the traditional with the modern. This year we are featuring ofrendas and artwork by Peter Perez, Martín Zúñiga, Mario Uribe, Rubén Guzmán, and Liz Camino-Byers. Included in the exhibition will be juried artwork by 5th-12th students from our Memory Portrait competition. The artwork by Peter Perez includes the combined efforts of students from Community Action Partnership, ArtStart, and museum volunteers. 


Decorate your own sugar skull and have your face painted for Día de Muertos. Bring a photo of a deceased loved one and make an offering to the community altar (optional, please use photocopies or digital printouts). Winners of the Museum\\\'s Memory Portrait Competition will be announced. Artist Peter Perez\\\'s coloring books will be for sale and Mr. Perez will be available to sign them.
