La Muerte Niña: Day of the Dead
Come celebrate the Day of the Dead with the works of over 90 artists of Mexican descent from both sides of the border. This year we are featuring the painting tradition of the Death Child and the little angels’ ritual. Thirteen ofrendas and installations were created to remember distinguished artists and members of the community alike. Folk art, paintings, and sculptures comprise the largest annual exhibition of Day of the Dead in the U.S.
Curated by Dolores Mercado.
La Muerte Niña: Day of the Dead exhibition is dedicated to the 43 missing students from the Ayotzinapa, Guerrero Teachers College, missing since September 26, 2014.
The exhibition will include 13 ofrendas and 116 art pieces from more than 90 artists from the U.S. and Mexico.
