Life after Death: The Day of the Dead in Mexico

The Lam Museum’s annual exhibit celebrates the 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.  The colorful exhibit includes information on the celebration’s history and its unique skeleton-themed folk art.  This year, it also includes a section about the fantastical folk art sculptures known as alebrijes.  Exhibit text is in English and Spanish.  Admission is free.
