Join us for the opening reception of this year's Dia de los Muertos exhibition. The exhibition features ofrendas (altars) and artwork created by local families, artists, and community organizations.

This year’s theme is “Traditions.” This year marks the 30th anniversary of WPCA and 25 year of our Dia de los Muertos exhibition. This is a tradition that we adapted to honor the Latino community around us, and our own community leaders that we’ve lost. It’s a good example of how art can be used to meaningful and ceremonial.

The reception will be festive, with food and beverages, DJ sets by Scratch Sessions South youth DJs (led by DJ Loop and DJ Bizzon), and a dance performance by Instituto Cultural de Danza// Cultural Institute of Dance.

OFRENDAS:
— WPCA's tribute to Chavela Vargas
— Cempazuchi restaurant/Bryce Clark's ofrenda to Chef Sal
— Young People Resistance Committee
— South Division High School students led by Dulce Rosas & Gloria Gonzalez
— Hayes Bilingual School
— Mexican Consulate
and more!

ARTWORK by:
— Leann Wooten
— Diego Heredia
— Yessica Jimenez
— Conhg Lopez

In addition to the ofrendas and artwork, this year we also present Dia de Muertos en Mexico, a photo series of 33 images by Mexican artists presenting a wide array of traditions and customs across Mexico. The series is provided by and in partnership with Consulate of Mexico in Milwaukee and National Council for Culture and Arts of Mexico.
