Event Details

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a day to celebrate, remember, and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed. On this day in Mexico, the streets near the cemeteries are filled with decorations of papel picado, flowers, candy calaveras (skeletons and skulls), and parades.

In order to celebrate, the families make altars and place ofrendas (offerings) of food such as pan de muertos baked in shapes of skulls and figures, candles, incense, yellow marigolds known as cemazuchitl (also spelled zempasuchil) and most importantly a photo of the departed soul is placed on the altar.

Let our Managing Artistic Director, Jacobo Lovo, guide you on a gallery tour and discussion of our current exhibit, Day of the Dead Ofrendas! Enjoy learning more about the art, the inspiration and symbolism behind it, and the unique techniques utilized in each exhibition featured in the Latino Arts Gallery!

Café con Arte includes churros and coffee and takes place in our Latino Arts Gallery. Registration is $5. Both an English Tour and Spanish Tour will be available!
