Description

La Calavera Catrina: Women’s Imagery and Day of the Dead examines the art and images of women who celebrate the Latin American traditions of Dia de los Muertos. Featuring a variety of hand-crafted objects on loan from the Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas, this exhibition traces the representation and role of women in Dia de los Muertos commemorations. Community members will be invited to add an ofrenda, a tribute to a loved one, to the museum’s community altar.
