Día de Muertx at UNA Gallery

Día de Muertx is about communing with our loved ones, alive and dead. Traditionally, altars (Altar de Muertx) are erected and adorned with different symbols, cherished objects, food, etc., for our deceased to enjoy on November 1st and 2nd. Those of us on the living realm, share dinner, music and poetry as our loved ones join us in a festive, bright and joyful celebration of life. 


The exhibit will include three Altares de Muertx, each themed and dedicated to:

Nuestrx Muertx // Our Loved Ones
Social Justice
Artists Before Us


The celebration on November 2nd will also include:

Poetry Reading
Music
Food

All people of color are invited to participate and collaborate on the exhibit and event.
