26th Annual Día de los Muertos
October 21 - November 9, 2013
Lawndale Art Center is pleased to present its 26th Annual Día de los Muertos events, a celebration of the art, music and folklife of Mexico. For over twenty years Lawndale has presented an annual open call, non-juried exhibition that celebrates the Mexican tradition of Día de los Muertos in a contemporary context.  This program supports area artists and students by offering them an opportunity to show their works to diverse audiences in a museum quality setting. Over the years additional programming has been developed to educate audiences and encourage dialogue in celebration of Mexican-American heritage in our region. Día de los Muertos programs and exhibitions at Lawndale Art Center promote cultural awareness of Mexican folk art practices associated with this celebration of family, life and community.
