Life After Death: The Day of the Dead in Mexico

The MOA’s annual exhibit celebrates the unique Mexican observance of the Day of the Dead.  The exhibit’s centerpiece is a traditional ofrenda, an altar with food and beverage offerings, flowers, sugar skulls, and photos of deceased family members.  This year, the colorful exhibit features vignettes on various aspects of the celebration as well as a section for visitors to contribute how they observe the holiday.  It also includes information on the celebration’s history and its unique skeleton-themed folk art.  Exhibit text is in English and Spanish.  Admission is free.
