Event Description
The Watkins Museum, in partnership with the Spencer Museum of Art, will open Living Memories: Celebrating Day of the Dead, with a Final Fridays event on October 28. The exhibition explores how gravesites can reflect the personalities of the dead and how different cultures remember their loved ones. It features objects and images related to Latin American celebrations of Dias de los Muertos and Douglas County’s Oak Hill Cemetery. The Watkins will be open for extended hours and feature a special performance to celebrate the collaboration between the two institutions.
