The U.S. Postal Service celebrates Day of the Dead with colorful new stamps by Mexican artist and designer Luis Fitch, founder and creative director of Minneapolis cross-cultural design agency UNO. We’re thrilled to host a dedication ceremony on Monday, October 25th at 10:00 am at the National Museum of Mexican Art. Come meet the artist and see the beautiful stamps for yourself! The dedication is open to the general public. RSVP at rachel@nmmart.org.

The new stamps from the U.S. Postal Service showcase the Day of the Dead holiday in all its flower-bedecked splendor. This pane of 20 Forever stamps contains five rows of four colorful stamps featuring several iconic elements of a traditional Day of the Dead offering. The vibrant colors of marigold flowers and other embellishments, along with the white of the sugar skulls, stand out brightly from the stamps’ black background.
