Día de Muertos XXV

Join us as we mark our silver anniversary exhibition in the Pilsen neighborhood!                                                                                                                        ¡Acompáñenos para nuestro aniversario de plata en el barrio de Pilsen! opening reception Friday, September 9, 2011. 6 –8:30pm Exhibition runs through December 11. La exposición cierra el 11 de diciembre.

This year’s exhibition is dedicated to photographer Milton Rogovin (1909-2011) and surrealist painter Leonora Carrington (1917-2011), two talented artists who fell in love with Mexico and contributed to its cultural legacy. Like past presentations, this exhibition brings many talented individuals together and highlights a great deal of the diversity within our growing community in North America. Most importantly, these works of art reveal the way in which this timeless tradition is now rooted in many U.S. cities.
