The Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University is hosting a week-long celebration in honor of El Día de los Muertos, a Mexican and Mexican-American festival in which participants remember those who have died and entice their souls to visit by building ofrenda, altars decorated with photos of deceased loved ones, dishes of their favorite foods, religious items, pungent marigolds, and candles to help light their way.

Leonel Rosario will show footage of Day of the Dead festivities filmed in his hometown in Oaxaca and talk about his experiences in Mexico and Western New York. Traditional foods provided by his restaurant Mariachi de Oro Mexican Grill will be served.  All are welcome.
