This is an informal committee gathering to encourage our members to celebrate and learn about our diverse community. Every year at SAM, Fulgencio Lazo and a team of local artists design a unique tapete (sand painting) to celebrate Día de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead. The art and traditions of Día de los Muertos aim to help us accept death as a part of life. Visit this year's tapete—inspired by Oaxaca’s beautiful Día de los Muertos traditions—from October 28 to November 6 and take part in a celebration at the museum on Friday, October 28 with music, dancing, and hands-on art activities that inspire creativity and learning. Free with RSVP. Limited tickets will be available at the door the day of, first-come, first-served. This event is kid friendly.
