A Celebration of Souls: Day of the Dead in Southern Mexico
Each November 1 and 2, on the Christian holidays of All Saint’s Day and All Souls Day, families in villages across Mexico gather to welcome home the visiting spirits of departed relatives on the Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). A Celebration of Souls: Day of the Dead in Southern Mexico explores the history and significance of Day of the Dead celebrations in Oaxaca, a southern region of Mexico.
A Celebration of Souls: Day of the Dead in Southern Mexico opens September 3 and runs through November 27 at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. Admission to the exhibit is included with your purchase of a general admission ticket to the Museum.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis.
