OMCA Members, explore The Tree of Life and Death: Dias de los Muertos 2013, the 19th annual Days of the Dead exhibition, on a Docent-led tour. The Mesoamerican traditions of the Days of the Dead honor deceased loved ones. This year, the themes of life, death and mourning are fused with ecology as guest artists incorporate elements from indigenous knowledge and modern conservation efforts into their works, which speak to themes found throughout the in the Gallery of California Natural Sciences, including habitat and species loss and conservation.
