SEE EVENT DETAILS
The Mesoamerican tradition of Días de los Muertos, celebrated between October 31 and November 2, is associated with iconic elements - sugar skulls, marigolds, colorful ofrendas—arranged or created to honor deceased loved ones. This fall, OMCA presents its 19th annual Días de los Muertos exhibition, The Tree of Life and Death: Días de los Muertos 2013, guest curated by renowned muralist Eduardo Pineda, and project managed by Senior Experience Developer Evenlyn Orantes.
