DIA DE MUERTOS / DAY OF THE DEAD CELEBRATION

Mexicráneos is an art project with the purpose of recognizing Mexican culture, with the “Día de Muertos” celebration in mind as one of Mexico’s most important festivities. The skulls pay homage to Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, a two-day Mexican holiday where families remember and pray for those who have died.

The two vibrantly colored skulls will be located at Market Street's Central Park. Each skull is painted by a different Mexican artist to portray an aspect of Mexican culture or heritage. Visitors are welcome to view the skulls for free each day through November 2, 2021.

ABOUT THE ART

Each skull was created by a Mexican artist or a group of Mexican artists. They are constructed of fiberglass and stand 6-feet tall and weigh just over 114 pounds.
