Día de Muertos
Poster House is pleased to participate in the Flatiron Nomad Partnership‘s first Día de Muertos celebration. Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a Mexican tradition of pre-Hispanic origin that celebrates the memory and presence of the deceased. According to popular belief, from October 31 – November 2 the souls return home to be with their loved ones. Altars are assembled with offerings, food, and rituals to celebrate their visit.
Poster House will offer a DIY printmaking activity using a tortilla press and linoleum blocks with traditional calavera imagery. Additional activities presented by The School of Visual Arts, Fotografiska, and Calpulli Mexican Dance Company.
