Día de los Muertos Exhibit at the Tacoma Art Museum

Calendar/Event Details

Join Tacoma Art Museum and partners in celebrating Día de los Muertos.

After an incredibly challenging 18 months, we see a continued need for people to come together to share the love and memories of those we have lost. Safe social distancing means we won’t be able to host thousands on October 31st as we had hoped, but our commitment to this festival has not wavered.

Visit TAM October 20 – 31 to view the tapete (sand painting) by acclaimed artist Fulgencio Lazo  and our exhibition of community-built ofrendas (altars.) Traditionally, families assemble altars in their homes laden with food and drink offerings to nourish the spirits on their long journey back home. Over the years at TAM, we have seen many beautiful and powerful offerings to those who have passed, and we look forward to sharing the beautiful altars created in the museum this year.
