At MCCLA, our Day of the Dead exhibit has been used as a platform to address socio political issues that have contributed to mass deaths in our community, and has given a safe space to freely mourn our deceased kin. Join us in a celebration of remembrance. In practice Day of the Dead ceremony is a healthy way to grieve, to heal, and to relate with our environment. This year we honor our time and our relationship to Mother Earth with gratitude to everything she has provided. Cultivando Tiempo · Cultivating Time is composed by several artists who showcase a unique multidisciplinary Day of the Dead exhibit that fuses tradition with contemporary installations.
Saturday, November 2, 2019 | 5:30 to 11:00 PM | $7 Admission
Join us to celebrate this sacred tradition in honoring our dead with a powerful blessing ceremony, live music and performances.
