Now in its 18th year, the annual Day of the Dead exhibition at SOMArts Cultural Center offers one of the most internationally diverse Día de los Muertos celebrations in the United States. Merging traditional Mexican altars with contemporary art installations, the exhibition presents a superabundant array of perspectives remembering, honoring, and celebrating the dead. Inspired by cherished relationships, current events, and personal and collective histories, more than 25 altars by over 50 participating Día de los Muertos artists build a dense environment of creativity that creates space for meaningful reflection and community engagement.

The exhibition closing event, Thursday, November 9, 6–9pm, $7–10 sliding scale admission, is the last opportunity to view and interact with the altars. The evening features a Día de los Muertos inspired artist market and live performances by San Francisco band Candelaria, led by lead singer Liliana Herrera, and inspiring performance by dance collective Rising Rhythm Project. Advance tickets are strongly encouraged.
