CELEBRATING THE SEASON  

In honor of Halloween (Oct 31) and Dia de los Muertos (Nov 1 & 2), an Ofrenda will be erected on "The Slope" across from the Fine Arts Complex. Watch for more details soon.

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration of life and death. While the holiday originated in Mexico, it is celebrated all over Latin America and the U.S. with colorful calaveras (skulls) and calacas (skeletons). The first day celebrates infants and children who have died. The second day is in honor of adults who have passed away.

 

GUEST SPEAKER Thur, Oct 28 at 2pm

Paola Meraz, Senior Interaction Designer at BMW and founder of HechoXPao, will be sharing the history of her favorite holiday - Dia de los Muertos. Register for Zoom
