#411 Mexico Art Impact For Health

Smile Train Mexico showcased Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), which is one of Mexico’s most significant cultural-religious events, to add some identity and strength to Art Impact 4 Health. Celebrated in November each year, it is a celebration of the continuity of life. Traditionally, November 1st honors deceased children, and November 2nd honors deceased adults. Day of the Dead is celebrated passionately throughout Mexico. This celebration emphasizes remembrance of past lives and expresses the celebration of the continuity of life. This acknowledgement of life’s progression has roots which go back to some of Mexico’s oldest civilizations. Local festivities and traditions vary from place to place, although the ofrendas are the focal point of the celebrations during the festive period. Mexico City hosts a large and elaborate procession downtown, and provincial towns and cities hold religious processions to mark the occasion. It’s currently fashionable for participants to have their faces painted to emulate Catrinas; the whole celebration is immersed in art, inspired by art and exhibits art everywhere.
