Celebrating Día de los Muertos

November 2, 2020 @ 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.

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.
