The name, Catrina Ball, refers to the Calavera Catrina – a sort of female, skeletal version of the Grim Reaper. Her image was created by Mexican illustrator José Guadalupe Posada around 1910 and remains a central figure in Mexico’s cultural identity.
All ages are invited to join us in celebrating Dia de Los Muertos with community painting of Catrina’s for our South Gallery Exhibition. In addition we will be making marigold paper flowers for our upcoming 6th Annual Catrina Ball & 3rd Annual Gigantes Procession! All materials for this activity are providing along with food and snacks!
