The Mexican Heritage Center and Gallery is hosting an educational program celebrating the Day of the Dead.  Between November 2nd and 30th the center will exhibition a colorful display of  altars, ofrendas and “wall art” created by local artists and community members celebrating this rich Mexican tradition, fusing Aztec and Christian beliefs, honoring the dead.

The Opening Night Reception will take place Tuesday, November 2 from 6-8 pm —the date when the Day of the Dead is traditionally celebrated in parts of Mexico.

Additionally, an evening of food and song will be held on November 6th from 5 to 8pm when family and friends will gather to share their memories of their dearly departed. 

“This year the center is sponsoring several community altars that can be toured throughout the city of Stockton,” said the event’s co-chair Niki Smith, “UOP Latino Outreach and La Mexicana Super Market are just a few of the participants this year”
