Ontario Museum of History & Art Presents Día de los Muertos: Everyday Heroes Exhibit

On exhibit from October 5, 2017 through November 12, 2017, the Ontario Museum of History & Art presents the annual Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) exhibit. The Museum has been honoring Day of the Dead traditions with large-scale exhibitions and events for two decades. Día de los Muertos: Everyday Heroes will showcase vibrant pieces of art honoring the deceased. This year’s artists bring their own highly personal views of life and death to a diverse array of media, including painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, and altar installations. This year’s theme, “Everyday Heroes” highlights individuals who face trials of adversity and remain strong. A person with an impressive strength of character is measured as a hero. Whether exhibiting heartfelt tributes to loved-ones, or light-hearted and humorous pieces, the collective result is as broadly educational as it is entertaining. Participants from the city-wide art contest will also have their ornaments on display in the Día de los Muertos exhibit.
