Sponsored by the Denver Botanic Gardens, the Longmont Museum is proud to showcase an exploration of the iconic female figure known as La Catrina. One of Dia de los Muertos' most recognizable icons, La Catrina was born out of Mexican social satire depicting the upper classes and is still seen today in celebration of the holiday. Experience this rich history and iconography through colorado calaca (skeleton) scupltures created by Ricardo Soltera. Altars for the dead created by community members are also a central part of the exhibition.
The opening reception is Thursday, October 10 from 6-8 pm. Admission is free with a nacho bar provided by Cyclhops Mexican Cantina. There will be a cash bar available.
