Santa Rosa Día de los Muertos Family Day

Today at 1 PM – 4:30 PM
Museum of Sonoma County
425 7th St, Santa Rosa, California 95401

Join us for a fun day of activities for families!

Learn about the festival of Día de Muertos from exploring our exhibition. The exhibition is a visual feast that combines the traditional with the modern. This year, we are featuring ofrendas and artwork by Peter Perez, Martín Zúñiga, Mario Uribe, Rubén Guzmán, and Liz Camino-Byers. Included in the exhibition will be juried artwork by 5th-12th grade students from our Memory Portrait Competition. The artwork by Peter Perez includes the combined efforts of students from Community Action Partnership, Artstart, and museum volunteers, through the Youth+Art Summer Program, sponsored by Creative Sonoma.

Decorate your own sugar skull and have your face painted for Día de Muertos. Bring a photo of a deceased loved one and make an offering to the community altar (optional, please use photocopies or digital printouts). Winners of the Museum’s Memory Portrait Competition will be announced. Artist Peter Perez’s coloring books will be for sale and Mr. Perez will be available to sign them.
