Day of the Dead Chicago

 
 

Day of the Dead Chicago
Sunday, October 29, 2017

Celebrate Día de los Muertos with a festival of light and projection that will transform the National Museum of Mexican Art’s exterior, bringing it to life. The Museum and surrounding area will be turned into an elaborate work of art, featuring visual displays which reveal the story of the Day of the Dead. Additionally, in Harrison Park, families and individuals will create their own ofrendas (Day of the Dead altars) transforming the soccer field into a festive community gathering place like you would see in Mexico on Día de los Muertos. Pan de Muerto (Day of the Dead Bread), altar demonstrations, live musical performances, face painting, and art activities will round out the evening.
