New Art Center in collaboration with Zaira Meneses, a Mexican musician and recipient of the 2018 Boston Foundation Award, will be presenting a three day opportunity to create an authentic Day of the Dead experience.  Students of all ages are encouraged to participate in the art of making traditional Mexican altar pieces expressing gratitude to loved ones no longer with us.

The exhibition date to view the altars will be open to the public on October 31st.
