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.  The colorful exhibit features a photo essay illustrating the celebration in San Miguel Allende and a new section discussing the commercialization of the holiday.  It also includes information on the celebration’s history and its unique skeleton-themed folk art.  The exhibit presents text in English and Spanish.  Admission is free.
