Viva la Vida: Celebrating 35 Years of Mexic-Arte Museum’s Día de los Muertos
Viva la Vida: Celebrating 35 Years of Mexic-Arte Museum’s Día de los Muertos is an exhibition presenting the Museum’s 35-year quest to share and expand the public’s knowledge about Day of the Dead. Día de los Muertos is a holiday with a historically rich tradition that integrates pre-Columbian and Catholic customs. It is celebrated in Mexico on November 1st and 2nd in connection with the Catholic All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. It is a time to honor and greet the departed as the spirits make their journey back from Mictlan (the underworld) to be with the living each year. Día de los Muertos is a time for families and friends to gather in celebration—a time when the cycle of life and death, rather than loss and sorrow, are embraced. Learn more here...
