We've switched from an art studio to a baking studio! In celebration of the upcoming Día de los Muertos, we're making pan de muerto, or dead bread, with our family and friends to help remember our deceased loved ones.
This common decoration used during Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, altars is called cartonerías. Made with papier-mâché, they are an important part of the celebration of both life and death. Learn more about it and make your own!
Artists often have a team or collaborate with one another, bringing impactful visions that start conversations or remix old stories with new ideas. One such artist is commercial and editorial photographer Tim Tadder, who collaborated with sculptor Krisztianna to create the Las Muertas photo series.
Los Días de Los Muertos, the Days of the Dead, are celebrated around the world. In this post, Collections Information Specialist Suzanne Slick tells the history of the celebrations and how you, and FWMoA, take part in remembering our dead.
