Día de los Muertos Celebration
Celebrate Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) at the Fine Arts Center!
Día de los Muertos is a celebration of life and death that demonstrates love and respect for deceased family members. The tradition originated in Mexico but is celebrated throughout Latin America and parts of the United States.
The FAC celebration includes a traditional Aztec altar by Denver-based artist and curator Maruca Salazar, ofrendas created by students from four local schools, and “Visibility and Belonging: Chicanx Art in Context,” an exhibition exploring Chicanx culture and its influences.
Maruca Salazar will install a traditional Aztec altar; visitors are invited to observe the process throughout the day.
