Caminando: Dia de los Muertos, 2008 By: Monstrochika

Dia de los Muertos festivities begin this weekend! The souls of our dead ancestors and other loved ones return to visit and walk among the living. We create beautiful altars with ofrendas of all their favorite foods, drinks and treats to let them know we are praying for them and have not forgotten them.

The 4th Annual Beautiful Souls Coffin Show  has quickly become a Chicago artist tradition. All thanks to Delilah Salgado, curator, artist, mentor, and long time advocate for the arts in the Pilsen community. You must come out and see this wonderful show she has put together and the works of art on these coffins will impress!

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 1, 2014 @ 7:00 PM at Cultura in Pilsen, 1900 S. Carpenter, Chicago, IL.

Elevarte Community Studio  is also holding their Annual Muertos de la Risa celebration and Dia de los Muertos procession. They are located right around the corner from where the coffin show exhibition will take place. There is fun for the whole family starting at 2:00 pm and the always stellar Dia de los Muertos procession begins at 5:00 pm!

End your evening with coffin art and DJ beats at the Beautiful Souls Coffin Show! See you there friends.
