Mexican Consulate, EP Museum of Art Team Up for Day of the Dead Celebration

The Consulate General of Mexico and the El Paso Art Museum invite residents to the traditional Day of the Dead celebration in which family and friends gather to honor and remember their deceased loved ones.

In Mexico, the Day of the Dead is a national celebration and it takes place on November 2nd. This Day of the Dead celebration will take place at the El Paso Museum of Art (One Arts Festival Plaza) on Thursday, November 2nd starting at 6:00 PM. Admission is free.

As part of the celebration, there will be an altar dedicated to the people who died during Mexico’s Earthquakes.

The piece includes contemporary influences in the plastic arts by Luis Colomo, who created a space to honor the people who died from the earthquakes in Mexico, without leaving aside the traditions of “El Altar de Muertos”.

The artist, El Paso-native Luis Colomo,  graduated from UTEP with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art with concentration in painting and graphic design. Colomo has had numerous exhibitions and public venues including Chalk The Block, where he has created nine chalk murals since 2008.

As part of the activities of this Mexican celebration, there will be a presentation of the “Las Catrinas” quartet recital, which will be followed by a tasting of the traditional pan de muertos and hot cocoa.
