Day of the Dead at Tacoma Art Museum

Centro Latino has been working with Tacoma Art Museum to produce a stunning Day of the Dead event, four years running. This year's tapete (a large sand mural) contains 2,000 pounds of sand, and local celebrated artists and volunteers worked together to create a temporary work of art.

What's super-cool about this link is that, at the bottom of the page, you can watch last year's tapete in its process of creation. It's an amazing tradition and I invite you to take a look, and visit Tacoma Art Museum this coming weekend! The celebration ends with a celebration from noon to 6pm on Sunday, with traditional music, dance and food.
