Day of the Dead: Una Exhibición opening Oct 7 in Denton


Day of the Dead: Una Exhibición
October 8 – November 2
Opening Reception, Friday, October 7, 6-8 PM
In partnership with Denton’s Day of the Dead Festival, the Greater Denton Arts Council presents an exhibition of traditional and contemporary ofrendas honoring departed loved ones and ancestors. Día de los Muertos is a Mexican holiday that celebrates the lives of family members and loved ones who have passed. Altars are built at the home of the families of the deceased, presenting offerings such as food, drink, flowers, incense and personal items to welcome the spirits of loved ones. Throughout the exhibition, visitors are encouraged to bring a personal item of remembrance to add to our community altar.
