INOLVIDABLE-UNFORGETTABLE DAY OF THE DEAD DIA DE LOS MUERTOS ARTE AMERICAS 2018


INOLVIDABLE | UNFORGETTABLE
The 31st Annual Exhibition and Gala
Celebrating El Día de los Muertos


For the last thirty-one years, Arte Américas has presented annual exhibitions showcasing altars and artwork inspired by the ancient indigenous holiday, El Día de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead.)   Guests will interact with altars, murals, artwork and larger than life 3D sculptures that are both spellbinding and educational in nature.
  
This year the tradition  continues with a collection of breathtaking works honoring the memories of the deceased. A grouping of grandiose  altar-mural-installations is on view in the Ruiz Gallery, and incorporates a multicultural selection of diverse individuals whose lives impacted the San Joaquin Valley community and beyond.
