Community Celebration: Día de Muertos

November 2, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Día de Muertos (Day of Dead) is a Mexican celebration of life to remember deceased loved ones. This year’s festivities will take place throughout the Mark Building and will highlight the diversity within our Mexican communities and how Day of Dead brings people together to celebrate in their own way. Culture, gastronomy, altars, performances, and more!

Organized in partnership with lead organizer Maria Garcia, a downtown business owner and Mexican cultural promoter. The exhibition of altars is curated by Eduardo Cruz, a local Mexican artist and performer.


The Portland Art Museum is pleased to offer accommodations to ensure that our programs are accessible and inclusive. All spaces for this program are accessible by wheelchair. Assistive listening devices are also available for lectures. All restrooms have accessible stalls but no power doors. There are single-stall all-gender bathrooms available.
