Be a part of the annual Day of the Dead / Día de los muertos festivities. The celebration begins at 10:30 a.m. on the museum’s front steps with an opening procession by the Danza Azteca Citlaltonac Tierra dancers. Throughout the rest of the day make art with the whole family, visit traditional art installations, enjoy a special exhibition of Day of the Dead quilts, and listen to Mariachi Azteca de Oro de Jose Valdez.
Day of the Dead / Día de los muertos is a traditional holiday celebrated widely in Latin American and interpreted broadly throughout the United States. It celebrates the continuance of life, family relationships, and community solidarity while finding humor after death. The day will be filled with music, food, art-making, and laughter. Join us with your friends and family for this joyous, unique, and important cultural event.
Day of the Dead is made possible by U.S. Bank and Palm Springs Art Museum Board of Trustees members Donna MacMillan, Harold B. Matzner, Harold J. Meyerman, Loren G. Lipson, M.D., and Leticia Quezada.
