Dia de los Muertos

Arts, Crafts and Presentation by Macedonio Arteaga and Izcalli

From the strike of dawn on Halloween to the end of the second day of November, Dia de los Muertos is celebrated by Mexicans all over the world. But it isn’t just about skeletons, and it isn’t scary either.

Dia de los Muertos is a vibrant, colorful celebration of life, with people gathering to honor friends and family members who have died. On Saturday, Oct. 20 from 1-5 p.m., Jacobs Center’s Arts Park @ Chollas Creek will hold a Dia de los Muertos event with Artist-In-Residence Macedonio Arteaga and cultural group Izcalli sharing how this ancient Mexican philosophy of honoring the dead celebrates life.
