Join the Des Moines Art Center for the 12th annual Día de los Muertos - Day of the Dead
celebration. The Day of the Dead is a traditionally Latino celebration that honors the lives
of members of the community who have recently passed away. The Day of the Dead is
a festive day of music, dancing, food and drink, art activities, and remembrances for the
whole family.
     At this year's Día de los Muertos, enjoy music by Mariachi Zapata, Pan de los Muertos
(traditional bread of the dead), and a commemorative film (2 pm and 3 pm; Levitt Auditorium).
Day of the Dead folk art will be featured in the Museum Shop, and there will be a cash bar
and lunch available.
     Admission is FREE and there will be a free parking shuttle from the Academy south of
the Art Center for additional parking.


Día de los Muertos - Day of the Dead 2012 is sponsored by Homesteaders Life Company,
Iles Funeral Homes, GuideOne, and US Bank.
