Art Walk: A Reprise of the Day of the Dead

Today’s celebration of El día de los muertos is turning out to be the largest one of its kind to date. Altars are set up at the Artist’s Village promenade and a segment of Fourth street, from Broadway to Ross streets.

Past exhibits were limited to a portion of Second street, from Sycamore to Main. In subsequent years the exhibit was moved to a parking lot on Third street, in front of the Yost theater.

The event has become more commercialized, it is now a combination of an art exhibit and street fair.

El día de los muertos was very much the theme of the night at the Santora where just about all of the galleries displayed artwork, photography, even clothing influenced by the day of the dead theme.
