Día de Muertos
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made changes to our programs and events, as well as the flow of the building. Hand sanitizer is available at the entrance, guests must sign-in at the front desk, everyone (staff and guests) must wear a mask correctly, and maintain six foot social distancing.
Celebrate & learn more about this traditional holiday taking place online, with onsite ofrendas (altars) and papel picado art installations from November 1-14th.*
Save the date for Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead)! Día de Muertos is a traditional Mexican holiday that celebrates deceased family members through music, storytelling, food, and ofrendas (altars). Join us for a hybrid event including both virtual and outdoor, in-person options that include exploration of ofrendas, papel picado window art installations, take-home art-making kits, and virtual performances of dancing, singing, and storytelling by Grupo Folclórico Macehuani. Plus, share a photo, drawing, or stories about your deceased loved ones by adding to our virtual community memorial wall on our Facebook event (please note that all memorial wall posts will be pre-approved)!
Additional information, including a schedule of events, will be announced shortly!
Contact us at GPAC@indy.gov for any questions.
*Though Día de Muertos is traditionally celebrated Nov 1-2, we want to give visitors the opportunity to engage with our installations and virtual content for a couple weeks to educate and experience the traditions of this celebration!
Contribute to our memorial wall via the Facebook event discussion tab to post messages and photos that honor your deceased loved ones. (Please note that memorial wall posts will be pre-approved).
