Dia de Muertos
October 31, 2018
For the second year, we're honored to host an event in celebration of and exploring the traditions of Dia de Muertos in collaboration with partners in Portland's Mexican community. On First Thursday, November 1, see oferta's built by Alejandra Arias Sevilla as well as performances by Aztec dancers, a demonstration of traditional crafting of sugar skulls, Mexican hot chocolate and a short talk on the pre-colonial roots of the Dia de Muertos tradition.
This builds on this week's community silk screen printing event in preparation for Dia de Muertos.
Por segundo año consecutivo, PNCA abre sus puertas para celebrar el Día de muertos. Haremos calaveritas de azúcar las cuales podrán llevarse a casa para construir sus altares. También tendremos una plática acerca de las raíces de esta celebracion prehispánica.
Al siguinte día, 2 de noviembre, continuaremos la celebracion en Portland Art Museum.
