Commemorate Día de Muertos with this unique, immersive experience. Purchase a timed ticket to follow a musical and visual path through the Día de Muertos: A Cultural Perspective exhibition, enjoying performances by Mexico beyond Mariachi in three different rooms! Afterwards, continue your explorations of the galleries and take a closer look at the artwork on display.
This event is appropriate for both adults and children (recommended for ages 7 and up).
Mexico Beyond Mariachi was created over 15 years ago to cultivate a deeper understanding of traditional Mexican performance and culture. Based in New York City, the group launched its first touring show in 2015.
The centerpiece of Día de Muertos celebrations is the ofrenda (altar) meant to welcome the spirits with a variety of food, water, photos, and other significant objects. Sugar skulls are traditionally placed on ofrendas or gravestones to honor the spirit.
In 2008, UNESCO recognized the importance of Día de Muertos by adding the holiday to its list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
