Celebrating Culture, Celebrating Lives Past

We were excited to partner once again this year with the Tacoma Art Museum to host Tacoma’s 12 Annual Dia De Los Muertos Community Celebration. Translated into English, Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that focuses on gathering family  and friends to pray for and remember those most important who have died.

For a North American culture that often denies the reality of death, Dia De Los Muertos provides a helpful corrective that both reminds and celebrates our mortality, along with those most important in our lives who are no longer with us.

Proyecto MoLE staff served as volunteers for the event on Sunday, November 6th and also coordinated the art exhibit of those in the community who created altars to honor their passed loved ones. Thanks to all of the staff, volunteers and community members who made for such a great event this year!
