Curator’s Talk | DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS

with Tohono Chul Director of Arts and Engagement, James Schaub.

Join us in the Exhibit House for a discussion about our new exhibition, DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS in the Main Gallery.

The celebration of El Día de los Muertos is a joyful occasion of remembrance, involving feasts and festivities through which death is recognized as a part of the natural process of living. Contemporary celebrations of this holiday bear both ancient traditions and a modern flair and have become a rich part of Tucson’s cultural heritage. Tohono Chul’s biennial exhibition celebrates the creative ways artists honor and enliven this deeply meaningful holiday through artistic expressions of personal and universal significance.

 Tuesday, August 29 &  Thursday, August 31
10 am in the Main Gallery
Free with Admission
