Founded in 1978, Pros Arts Studio (PAS) links residents and artists in the Pilsen neighborhood through arts
programs. Today, PAS is a community based organization that uses arts for youth development and continues
securing youth-activated safe spaces that honor tradition and innovation. Since 1979 PAS has celebrated
its Dia de los Muertos community procession, making it the longest running Day of the Dead event in Pilsen.
Pros Arts Studio proudly presents the 31st annual Dia de los Muertos celebration, Muertos de la Risa – an
evening of thigh-slapping carcajadas and belly laughter. Join us for a community procession featuring giant
pole puppets, face painting, and multi-media street-level ofrendas.
