Exhibition in Princeton celebrates El Día de los Muertos

El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

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 Nov. 14.

El Día de los Muertos 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 presents a vibrant 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 our community workshops.

Hours are 1:30-8:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
