Second Annual Dia De Los Muertos: Art After Dark Festival on October 27th

Art after darkLast year marked the first-ever Dia De Los Muertos: Art After Dark festival in San Angelo, Texas, where the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts and Angelo State University worked together to bring a free public celebration of the legendary Day of the Dead to the area. Held at the museum itself and beginning at 6 PM, the event invites everyone in the San Angelo area to experience this slice of Mexican culture and art while creating a sense of community.

 

Tons of events and activities will be offered, such as performances by the Ballet Folklorico and the Ballet Azteca, as well as live music from a Selena cover band, a traditional dress-up contest with cash prizes, a parade with a mariachi band, and much, much more. Food and art vendors will be available onsite if you’d like to bring a little bit of the celebration home with you, too, and the ASU Cultural Center will be providing a Community Altar for event goers to partake in the act of remembering those who have passed away.

 

The Dia De Los Muertos: Art After Dark event will be held on October 27th and feature the artwork, photography, music, and dance of the Mexican-American community in San Angelo, Texas – but, of course, the festival is for everyone to participate in and enjoy.
