Día de los Muertos returns to Art Center East!
Art Center East’s annual Día de los Muertos / Day of the Dead exhibit and community celebration will open with a community celebration on October 28, 2022. The exhibit features artworks created by K-12 students from throughout Union County inspired by Mexican folk-art traditions associated with Día de los Muertos. Join us for our family-friendly community celebration on October 28 at Art Center East and visit the exhibit through November 10. The exhibit and the community celebration are free!
The community altar (ofrenda) at ACE will be open to the public beginning October 28. We invite you to bring in a photo and/or a memento of a lost loved one starting October 28 at 12:00 pm. You’ll place these on the ofrenda to honor and celebrate your loved ones who have passed away. (Please plan to pick up your item(s) on November 9 or 10). Paper will be available for writing a message, or feel free to bring your own message. See the beautiful ofrenda with all its candles lit on Friday, October 28, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
