Join the Des Moines Art Center for the 13th annual Día de los Muertos - Day of the Dead
celebration. Day of the Dead is a traditional Latino celebration that honors the lives
of members of the community who have recently passed away, as well as a festive
day of music, dancing, food and drink, art activities, and remembrances for the
whole family. This year's Day of the Dead honors Warren Morrow (1977-2012).
A film on Warren's life and work will be shown in Levitt Auditorium at 2 pm and again at 3 pm.

At this year's Día de los Muertos, enjoy music by Mariachi Zapata, a performance by
Omeyocan Dance Company, traditional refreshments, and a commemorative film.
Day of the Dead folk art will be featured in the Museum Shop, and a cash bar
and lunch will be available.

Admission is FREE, and a free shuttle near the Academy, south of the Art Center,
will also be provided.

Día de los Muertos - Day of the Dead 2013 is sponsored by Homesteaders Life Company,
Iles Funeral Homes, GuideOne Insurance, and US Bank.
