Every year something unique takes place in many areas of Mexico: Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). The concept of “Death” and “festivities” may be strange for most of us to think that the two go hand-in-hand, for most Mexicans, the two are entwined. This is a belief that stems from the ancient indigenous peoples of Mexico (Purepecha, Nahua, Totonac and Otomi) who believed that the souls of the dead return each year to visit with their living relatives -to eat, drink and be merry.

The Carnegie Art Museum invites you to join us in the celebration for our free Family Day filled with cultural activities that honor the lives of loved ones in the tradition of “Día de los Muertos”

Saturday, October 24
11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
