The opening ceremony of a Mexican art exhibit, "Day of the Dead: The Parade of the White Lady," was held on November 2. The exhibition is open to the public through December 2.
The traditional celebration of the Mexican Day of the Dead has been designated as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
This year, the celebration is dedicated to the “Catrina,” the artistic expression of a dead noble lady, created by Jose Guadalupe Posada 1852-1913 and immortalized in Mexican art and popular culture by Diego Rivera 1886-1957, among other artists.
The exhibition, “The Parade of the White Lady,” stems from the same period, with a replica of Diego Rivera’s famous wall painting, “Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in the Alameda Park,” and a selected collection of contemporary Mexican art on various Catrinas on display.
