Experience the lives, loves, and influence of two art icons of the 20th century. Few artists have captured the public's imagination with the force of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907–54) and her husband, the Mexican painter and muralist Diego Rivera (1886–1957). The myths that surrounded them in their lifetime arose not only from their significant bodies of work, but also from their friendships (and conflicts) with leading political figures and their passionate, tempestuous personal relationships.

Dia de los Muertos is truly a celebration of life and the beauty of remembering those who have come before us.
Talking about the dead is not something our children often get the space to do, and it is a valuable lesson in honoring those we love while building empathy for others. Seeing our community is full of people who have experienced loss is a common thread that unites humanity throughout time.
Come and enjoy live music and dance, decorate sugar skulls, get your face painted, eat delicious food, enjoy family friendly games and activities, see a screening of Pixar’s Coco, and visit the stunning artistic altar installations created by community members paying homage to los muertos.
