Día de Muertos

November 2, 2022

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 ArtsFotografiska, and Calpulli Mexican Dance Company.
