Día de los Muertos is a day of celebration for the people of Latin America, particularly in Mexico and Central America, and more recently for Mexican Americans. Join us in learning the meaning and exploring Latino cultural heritage through this holiday for honoring the dead and the cycle of life and death. Learn different aspects of Día de los Muertos and how it is celebrated and practiced. Attendees will create pieces like flowers, masks, and papel picado that can be added to a collaborative altar display in the Asian/Hispanic/Native American Center. Featuring local artist and WSU alumna, Gabriela Pickett.
