A reception for the opening of the art exhibit Friday November 3, 2017, from 6 to 10 pm.

The exhibit runs through Tuesday, November 14th.
El Dia de los Muertos is a national holiday in Mexico. It features a blend of Mexican indigenous traditions with European Catholic influences, but it is first and foremost about honoring ancestors.
Casa de Arte has presented Mexican art to Buffalo for seven years. During our annual Day of the Dead celebration, we always highlight an artist that is no longer with us. This year, sadly, it will be Casa De Arte itself, as we will close our doors for good after this, our final exhibit.
