El Día de los Muertos at the Arts Council of Princeton
DAY OF THE DEAD EXHIBITION: The Arts Council of Princeton now presents an El Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) art installation in its Taplin Gallery, featuring works created by participants from its community workshops.
El Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) comes alive through color and celebration with an exhibition at the Arts Council of Princeton through November 14.
El Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is observed in Mexico and throughout the world this time of year, where family and friends gather to remember and honor those who have died. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars using sugar skulls, marigolds, and
favorite foods of those who have passed.
The Arts Council of Princeton now presents an art installation in its Taplin Gallery inspired by this culturally-rich holiday. The gallery will be filled with an elaborate altar, flower constructions, plus the sugar skulls, papel picado, and nichos created by participants from their community workshops.
The Arts Council of Princeton is located at 102 Witherspoon Street. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday 1:30 to 8:30 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit artscouncilofprinceton.org.
