    The Rockwell serves as a community center that values a high quality, cultural experience for visitors, residents and supporters. That’s why we’re proud to once again present our Annual Dia de los Muertos celebration, our most popular program for families and youth! 

    -

     

    Throughout the month of October, regional middle-school Spanish Language students visit The Rockwell, learn about Oaxacan culture and traditions, and create decorative objects for their own Dia de Los Muertos student altar, on display in The Rockwell’s Student Gallery.  This educational initiative integrates cultural traditions with classroom education and creates an opportunity for students to connect an artistic experience, all while learning outside of the classroom.

    The month culminates in The Rockwell’s annual celebration of Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead), a Mexican holiday steeped in tradition that honors friends and family members through art, dance and festive foods. Don’t miss out!

    • Explore traditions of Oaxacan culture
    • Meet La Catrina, the famous traditional character made popular by Mexican artist José Guadalupe Posada
    • Decorate your own sugar skulls
    • Make your own paper flowers
    • Enjoy hot chocolate with Pan de Muerto, a delicious Mexican bread often served as dessert
    • Come dressed in your own Dia de los Muertos attire, walk the red carpet, and receive a $5 Gift Card to The Museum Store!

    Celebrate with us! 

    This program is made possible in part by a grant from the Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes, Inc.
