Dia de los Muertos
Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a two day holiday celebrated on All Saints' Day (Nov. 1) and All Souls' Day (Nov. 2) throughout Latin America, although it is most often associated with Mexico, where the tradition of honoring the dead with food, drink, rituals, and festivities first began. The most familiar symbol of Dia de los Muertos is the skeleton, and more specifically, the skull. Sugar skull art is a folk art tradition known for it's grinning skulls, bright colors, and glittery adorments.
Join us in the Museum on November 1st & 2nd to check out our altar and to decorate sugar skulls in celebration of Dia de los Muertos!
