28th Annual Día de los Muertos

Monday, Oct. 19, 2015 – Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015


Lawndale Art Center presents the 28th Annual Día de los Muertos series of programs. Visitors are invited to celebrate the art, music and folklife of Mexico through an exhibition of artist-made retablos, student installations, workshops and performances. Día de los Muertos programs educate audiences and encourage dialogue about the rich Mexican-American heritage in the region, as well as promote cultural awareness of this celebration of family, life and community.
