The ninth annual Day of the Dead observance presented by Calaveras y Diablitos artists features ancient traditions such as an ofrenda (altar), huge papier-mâché figures, tissue paper cut-outs, marigolds, and other symbols celebrating late loved ones. There’s always an incredible contemporary spin on this amazing exhibit, which will be on view in the library’s Lumen Winter Gallery during regular library hours.

Monday, November 2, 6:30 – 7:15 pm: A free performance by the extraordinary group of Aztec dancers, Atl-Tlachinolli, will begin in the Ossie Davis Theater and conclude at the offrenda. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis, to the capacity of the Ossie Davis Theater.
