In this episode of Radio Art Center, the Des Moines Art Center's Director of Marketing and PR Christine Crawford sits down with the event's chair Vince Valdez to talk about this year's Day of the Dead – Día de los Muertos 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.
The Des Moines Art Center will honor Mario and Simone Soria at this year's Day of the Dead celebration. Theirs is a love story of two people whose paths crossed in America after living rich and tragic lives on two different continents.
