From Mexic-Arte Museum:
“Día de los Muertos is an annual celebration taking place throughout Mexico, recognizing the cycle of life all people are a part of and a commemoration of the lives of loved ones that have passed away.
In 1984, Mexic-Arte Museum celebrated Día de los Muertos for the first time at the Arts Warehouse in downtown Austin. 40 years later, Mexic-Arte Museum’s Day of the Dead celebration is the longest running Día de los Muertos celebration in Texas.
In recognition of the 40th anniversary of Mexic-Arte’s Día de los Muertos celebration, an exhibition, 40 Years of Día de los Muertos will be on display from Saturday, September 22, 2023 until January 7, 2024.
This exhibition will include artwork from the permanent collection, inspired by icons of Día de los Muertos, including ofrendas like those seen in Mexico, and two-dimensional and three-dimensional artworks, with artwork by José Guadalupe Posada and others. 40 Years of Día de los Muertos will also feature new artworks made in conjunction with Mexic-Arte by the Emmily Arenas family, Connie Arismendi, Mauro de la Tierra and Laura Ríos-Ramirez. A lowrider bicycle provided by Austin Lowriding will also be on display.”
