Day of the Dead Exhibit
Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a time to honor and celebrate deceased loved ones. In partnership with the Denver Botanic Gardens, the Longmont Museum is proud to showcase an exploration of the iconic female figure known as La Catrina in this exhibition.
One of Día de Los Muertos’ most recognizable icons, La Catrina was born out of Mexican social satire depicting the upper classes and is still seen today in celebration of the holiday.
Experience this rich history and iconography through colorful calaca (skeleton) sculptures created by artist Ricardo Soltero. Altars for the dead created by community members are also a central part of the exhibition.
Exhibit runs daily from October 10- November 4, 2019.
