Celebrating Día de los Muertos

November 2 @ 2:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join the National Portrait Gallery in our annual Día de los Muertos event – a Mexican celebration of life, memory, identity, and culture. This year we’re taking the program outside as we invite the public to remember loved ones and victims of COVID-19 – a pandemic that disproportionately impacts Latinx communities in the United States.

Altars on the museum steps will give visitors a chance to contribute their own memories via artwork, photos, or other items. A 2-hour live visual performance by MasPaz and Guache will be projected onto the museum facade, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Please note:
Masks and social distancing are required.
This event will be photographed and recorded.

YOU CAN PARTICIPATE:
Want to participate but can’t join us? Submit your images and we will place them on the altar on the day of the event.
