Description

La Catrina Speaks: Political Discourse and Dia de los Muertos uses artifacts on loan from the Spencer Museum of Art to show how the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead gave voice to political, cultural, and social concerns. Artifacts drawn from the museum’s collection illustrate how residents of Douglas County have expressed their political views. By exploring how citizens in the past expressed their concerns La Catrina Speaks encourages Lawrencians to voice their beliefs on today’s important issues. La Catrina Speaks will be open October 31 - December 26, 2014.
