Rito y Recuerdo Day of the Dead

September 19 – December 14, 2014

In Mexico, we remember those who have passed away. When a person dies, we begin a series of rituals that are repeated annually on November 1 & 2. Among the installations, folk art, and works by more than 60 artists from both sides of the border, this year’s exhibition features an Otomí altar, an Ofrenda-Túmulo, and a Hanal Pixán Mayan offering.
