A Celebration of Souls: Day of the Dead in Southern Mexico

LOCATION: Dunn Museum of Lake County, 1899 W Winchester Rd, Libertyville, IL 60048

Each year, families in villages across Mexico gather to welcome home the visiting spirits of departed relatives on the Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead). Explore the complex and rich histories of honoring the dead in ancient Mesoamerica, the labor of love involved in these diverse rituals, and the spiritual importance of this holiday through photographs taken in and around Oaxaca, Mexico. This exhibition was developed by the Field Museum in collaboration with Mars, Incorporated.
