BENEFITING: NATIONAL MUSEUM OF MEXICAN ART

EVENT DATE: Oct 30, 2016

THE STORY:

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the National Museum of Mexican Art’s (NMMA) Day of the Dead Celebration. Our celebration will take place on Sunday, October 30th outside the Museum and YOU can help us make it spectacular!

Día de los Muertos has its roots in ancient Mexico and is a spiritual holiday that celebrates our deceased loved ones, reminding us to celebrate the beauty of life through remembrance.

In Mexico, many people begin preparing for this holiday weeks in advance; families and community members come together to remember the deceased by creating altars (ofrendas) for their loved ones. As part of NMMA's family, this is where you come in.

Please contribute to this effort by making a donation to support the work we do to celebrate Día de los Muertos and spread its meaning throughout our community.

Last year for the first time ever and with the support of Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special events community members had the opportunity to create ofrendas at our annual Day of the Dead Community Night. We received an abundance of gratitude for the opportunity to create these offerings and stories for others to see and share. We also heard your requests to do to it again this year and through donations large and small from people like you, we hope the National Museum of Mexican Art will be able to offer this opportunity yet again.
