Mexic-Arte Museum invited community members and visual artists to celebrate the Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) holiday (November 1–2). To honor the dead, artists will create ornate altars consisting of traditional adornments such as cempasuchitl (marigolds), foodstuffs, and memorabilia commemorating a deceased individual. This year the Mexic-Arte Museum will commemorate the passing of one of the original co-founders, Sam Z. Coronado.
