National Museum of Mexican Art

In Celebrations

The National Museum of Mexican Art cordially invites to you join us for the opening reception for #30 Día de los Muertos: Journey of the Soul.

The exhibition will open to the public on Friday, September 23rd from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and will continue through December 11th, 2016. A special member preview will take place opening night from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

This year marks the 30th annual Day of the Dead exhibition in Chicago. Three decades ago when the Museum first initiated this artistic tradition, few Chicagoans were familiar with the life-affirming holiday. Today, the ancestral rituals involved in honoring deceased loved ones have become part of the popular culture across the US. Journey of the Soul showcases the indigenous roots and rituals involved in the spiritual tradition. Site-specific ofrendas, popular art, and fine art by more than fifty Mexican artists from both sides of the border make up the largest annual exhibition of Day of the Dead in the U.S.
