The California Museum will be hosting a reception for their exhibit Day of the Dead: Art of Día de los Muertos on Friday, October 25th. If you've been planning to come see the exhibit, why not come Friday and make it a night out?
The exhibit features works of art from John Huerta, David Lozeau & Rob-O. The artists also created altars for public figures such as Frida Kahlo and Bob Ross. Some of the artists will be at the event to give you a tour of their works. Prints from the artists are available at the gift shop, along with other Día de los Muertos items.
There will also be additional things to experience that are not part of the normal exhibit. The Xiuhcoatl Danza Azteca dance troop will perform a blessing and a dance, and there will be a sugar skull art demonstration. The MAYAHUEL Restaurant & Tequila Museum will also be bringing a display of beautifully decorated chairs.
Activities include a community altar where you can make memorial pictures for your loved ones. You can also get your face painted by Carmen Avila to look like a sugar skull. Food and cocktails will be provided by MAYAHUEL Restaurant & Tequila Museum. You will need to bring your ID if you intend to drink.
If you buy your tickets online, you can get a 50% discount. However, that offer ends Thursday at 5:00 pm. No fear, you'll still be able to buy tickets at the door. For more info, visit the event's Facebook page.
