Maude Kerns Art Center Presents

The Maude Kerns Art Center celebrates the 27th annual Día de los Muertos Exhibit in 2020 with artwork, community altars, and a special Day of the Dead Gift Shop. The exhibit, which can be viewed in person or online, is on display through Monday, November 2.

The Mexican Day of the Dead celebration acknowledges the link between the communities of the living and the dead. The holiday blends the ancient harvest rituals of the Aztec god of death and the Roman Catholic holidays of All Souls and All Saints days. On November 1 and 2, the dead are thought to return to partake in the activities of the living. Holiday activities include the creation of altars that welcome deceased loved ones.
