Colores de la Muerte Art Exhibition
Explore the rich history of Mexico and celebrate Dia de los Muertos at the Center’s museum exhibition, Colores de la Muerte.
Amble through Mexico’s storied past with Tren de la Historia, a series of train-car sculptures that recount the turning points of the Mexican Revolution along with 30 mixed media sculptures from the Mingei International Museum and an altar installation honoring the Mexican author, Octavio Paz.
