The National Museum of Mexican Art cordially invites you to join us for the opening reception of Day of the Dead: Tilica y flaca es la calaca.

The Day of the Dead is one of the most stunning and important living traditions in Mexico, classified in 2003 by the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The Mexican community north of the US/Mexico border conserves and participates in the traditions of Day of the Dead by gathering in cultural spaces such as the Museum to honor and remember loved ones no longer present. Fine art and folk art are integrated into this exhibition to bring to life a Mexican celebration that bridges borders. This year more than 100 artists are represented in the exhibition via 10 ofrendas, The Xoloitzcuintle Project, folk art, and fine art pieces. This exhibition is curated by Dolores Mercado.

The exhibition will continue through December 10, 2017. Please note, doors open at 6:00 p.m. on September 22nd, and the exhibition will not be open prior to that time.
Only registered users may comment.
