Sólo un poco aquí Day of the Dead

September 18 – December 13, 2020

This year’s exhibition pays tribute to and remembers the numerous individuals from our community, Mexico, the U.S. and the entire world that have died from COVID-19. Join us to see new installations, paintings, and prints created by local artists for this, the 34th annual Day of the Dead exhibition. In addition there will be works of art in various media from the growing National Museum of Mexican Art Permanent Collection. These works created by Mexican artists from both sides of the border reveal their interest in preserving and participating in one of the most influential living celebrations from Mexico, which over time has transcended borders.
