Dia de los Muertos is a time to honor and celebrate our loved ones who have passed. The beautiful festivities come alive each October and November, with brilliant colors, ornate patterns, and intricate artwork. You will see tons of vibrantly-colored flowers; sweet sugar skulls; and several Calavera Catrinas, the female skeleton of Dia de los Muertos, based on a zinc etching by Jose Guadalupe Posada.

These Catrinas will have on the most glorious headdresses, and stunning makeup. Everything you see will be an artistic and cultural homage to the Aztec and Maya, and a love letter to Mexico, and beyond. It’s all a beautiful way to show love for family, friends, and heroes on the other side. The following people showed off their artistic creativity, and fueled our Latinx pride, with their own interpretations of Dia de los Muertos.
