Join the Des Moines Art Center for the 13th annual Día de los Muertos – Day of the Dead celebration. Day of the Dead is a traditional Latino celebration that honors the lives of members of the community who have recently passed away, as well as a festive altar, day of music, dancing, food and drink, art activities, and remembrances for the whole family. At this year’s Día de los Muertos, enjoy music by Mariachi Zapata, a performance by Omeyocan Dance Company, traditional refreshments, and a commemorative film. Day of the Dead folk art will be featured in the Museum Shop, and a cash bar and lunch will be available. Admission is FREE, and a free shuttle near Bergman Academy, south of the Art Center, will also be provided.
