Attendees will also have the chance to watch Marquez create new art through a live experience during the event!
“This is a powerful and important holiday… the best holiday of the year,“ Marquez explained. “It is our chance to have access to spirits in the other world and it is very important to show respect.”
Free & open to the public, all ages welcome. All artwork is for sale and a portion of the sale benefits art programming at the Center. The Gallery 212 exhibit will run through November 1st and will conclude with the Center’s Public Altar Lighting Ceremony. To learn more about the Día de los Muertos at the Center Events, click HERE.
