Day of the Dead: Tilica y flaca es la calaca
  • The Day of the Dead is one of the most stunning and important living traditions in Mexico, classified in 2003 by the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The Mexican community north of the US/Mexico border conserves and participates in the traditions of Day of the Dead by gathering in cultural spaces such as the Museum to honor and remember loved ones no longer present. Mexican artists on both sides of the border frequently express a sense of continuity and cultural identity in their works of art. Fine art and folk art are integrated into this exhibition to bring to life a Mexican celebration that bridges borders.
