El Arte de Las Almas

October 11 - December 15

The California Museum

Opening Friday, October 11, 2019, at the California Museum’s annual Día de Los Muertos Fiesta,  “El Arte de las Almas: Día de los Muertos 2019” (“The Art of Souls: Day of the Dead 2019”) is a new exhibit at the California Museum featuring original art and contemporary altar installations by California artists including John S. Huerta, Oscar Magallanes and Raul Mejia.

A journey through life, love and death, the exhibit explores the Mexican cultural tradition of honoring deceased loved ones each year on November 1 and 2 by displaying calaveras de azúcar (sugar skulls), altares de muertos (altars of the dead) and ofrendas (offerings), which has evolved from the Aztecs to modern-day Mexico and California.

Members of the public are also invited to remember a lost loved one in the exhibit’s Community Altar. On view October 11 through Sunday, December 15, 2019.
