Not only does Day of the Dead have strong ties with our Hispanic community, it was declared a World Heritage Day by UNESCO in 2003, acknowledging the importance and strength of living heritage that is transmitted through community from generation to generation. What makes this traditional Mexican holiday so special? How has it taken on new meaning and proportions in the United States and beyond? This installation will explore how we as humans celebrate and remember the lives of our lost loved ones through the collective traditions, art-making and story-telling that are integral parts of Dia de los Muertos. 

A mobile audio tour, in-gallery activities, altar display and Catrinas will all be part of the ongoing celebration. The exhibition will also have bi-lingual didactics (English and Spanish). 

If you would like to share a picture and/or memory of a loved one who has passed, please email the information to to be shared in the exhibition.
