The National Museum of Mexican Art is pleased to announce the opening of its 37th annual Day of the Dead exhibition on Friday, September 22nd in the Main Gallery. Entitled Día de Muertos, Living Presence, this year’s exhibition remembers the thousands of people who died in the February 2023 earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. The exhibition will also memorialize women around the world who have been violated, disappeared, or murdered, with a large installation by eighteen local artists. With flowers, food, and drinks, we await the return home of loved ones who no longer walk this Earth. Join us for the opening reception on Friday, September 22nd to experience this age-old tradition of honoring the lives of lost loved ones through captivating altars, beautiful folk art, and evocative fine art.
I am grateful and honored to be one of the eighteen artists whose work will be included in the large installation mentioned above.
