El Arte de Las Almas: Día de Los Muertos 2019

Presented by The California Museum at California Museum

Opening Friday, October 11, 2019, at the California Museum’s annual Día de Los Muertos Fiesta,  “El Arte de las Almas: Día de los Muertos 2019” (“The Art of Souls: Day of the Dead 2019”) is a new exhibit at the California Museum featuring original art and contemporary altar installations by California artists including John S. Huerta, Oscar Magallanes and Raul Mejia.

A journey through life, love and death, the exhibit explores the Mexican cultural tradition of honoring deceased loved ones each year on November 1 and 2 by displaying calaveras de azúcar (sugar skulls), altares de muertos (altars of the dead) and ofrendas (offerings), which has evolved from the Aztecs to modern-day Mexico and California.

Members of the public are also invited to remember a lost loved one in the exhibit’s Community Altar. On view October 11 through Sunday, December 15, 2019.
