Dia de los Muertos

This will be our studio’s grand opening event.

In Mexico El Dia de los Muertos is one of the most important events of the year, it is the time when you welcome back the souls of the departed and have a big party for them, the belief is that they will make a long trip to be part of the celebration and they don’t want to see tears or sorrow, they want us to be happy to have them back (at least for a night).
For many years I have helped organize several Day of the Dead events in Grand Rapids, now for the first time I’m having my own event.
And what will this be?
The ofrenda a big part of the celebration
Skull painting
Traditional Bread

And most important:
Day of the Dead related art by artists:
Carlos Aceves, Hugo Claudin, Alynn Guerra, Rebecca Rodriguez, Reb Roberts & Carmella Loftis, Sarah Scott-Brandt, Jeff smith and Elisabeth Vedrin

The place:
Red Hydrant Studio
324 Straight SW and Hemlock
Door M
Grand Rapids MI 49504
616 808 0092
