Days of the Dead Community Celebration

The Oakland Museum of California is known for its annual Days of the Dead Community Celebrations, where the celebration of the mesoamerican tradition of Días de los Muertos comes alive in a colorful display of music, dance, art, family activities, and more. The celebration on Sunday, October 25, 2015 promises to be the most vibrant one yet, with annual favorites such as the artisanal mercado, community-created altars, hands-on art-making and food demonstrations, calavera face painting, and live performances of all kinds returning to the beautiful Museum gardens. The accompanying exhibition, titled Rituals + Remembrance, will also be on view in the Great Hall, celebrating the theme of memorial across cultures and exploring how Latin American, Filipino, Hawaiian, Japanese, Chinese and other communities view death, memory, and healing.
