Day of the Dead

About

Due to continued Covid-19 precautions and in valuing the health of our community, we will not be holding the popular Day of the Dead family celebration in 2021. We encourage you to visit the altar exhibition October 2-November 28 at FWMoA and to participate in the Community Altar! Details below.

This community-centered altar exhibition includes traditional elements of the ancient Latin American holiday, Día de los Muertos, such as sugar skulls, colorful tissue paper cutouts, and photos or personal items of deceased relatives to honor the souls of the departed.

The holiday has evolved from a blend of Meso-American and Christian cultures, and those traditions come to life with this celebratory exhibition at FWMoA featuring memorials created by artists, families, and community groups from throughout the region.

This year we invite visitors to an Open House on November 7, 2021 to celebrate el día de los muertos with free admission!
