Opening reception for La Muerte Niña at NMMA

September 18, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Come celebrate the Day of the Dead with the works of over 90 artists of Mexican descent from both sides of the border. This year we are featuring the painting tradition of the Death Child and the little angels’ ritual. Thirteen ofrendas and installations were created to remember distinguished artists
and members of the community alike. Folk art, paintings, and sculptures comprise the largest annual exhibition of Day of the Dead in the U.S.

La Muerte Niña: Day of the Dead exhibition is dedicated to the 43 missing students from the Ayotzinapa, Guerrero Teachers College, missing since September 26, 2014.
