30th Annual Día de los Muertos Exhibit
October 13, 2023 - November 3, 2023
The Maude Kerns Art Center celebrates the 30th annual Día de los Muertos Exhibit in 2023 with artwork, community altars, and a special Day of the Dead Gift Shop. The exhibit opens October 13th and runs through November 3rd.
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.
