Dia de los Muertos
Join us for our 3rd annual celebration of Día de los Muertos / Day of the Dead. This holiday is a time to remember and celebrate loved ones who have passed on. We'll have many of the traditional elements to help you honor the departed, from altar making to sugar skull decorating and more.
Arts Activities 10am–2pm (or while supplies last) | Music 12:30–1:45pm
Art Making 10am–2pm
The Education Department and Yollocalli Arts Reach of the National Museum of Mexican Art host biweekly art activities at the Maxwell Street Market. To celebrate the Day of the Dead, today's activities will include:
Son Monarcas is a Latin Folk Fusion ensemble led by Mercedes Inez Martinez and Irekani Ferreyra. Like that of the Monarch Butterfly, they take you on a musical migration from the USA to Latin America by fusing indie soul with traditional son & cumbia. Son Monarcas is comprised of musicians who are well-versed in the Afro-Mestizo genres of folk music from Latin America and blend the traditional with the contemporary by creating original arrangements of "son" while retaining the foundation of the traditional style. Their original compositions include influences of Cumbia, Samba, Jazz and Experimental music in English and Spanish.
Event is rain or shine. All art making while supplies last.
