DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS: EVERYDAY HEROES

Thursday, October 5 to Sunday, November 12, 2017

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) emphasizes remembrance of past lives and a celebration of the continuity of life. It is a tradition with roots to Mexico’s oldest civilizations. Explore Día de los Muertos through the artwork of local artists at our annual exhibit showcasing contemporary work in painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, ofrendas (altars) and the participants from the city-wide art contest! Free admission. For more information, call (909) 395-2510.
