“On The Path Of Marigolds”

Nov 4, 2019

Mon. 11/4, 7p: Between life and death there are blurred frontiers in Mexican traditions. The celebration of El día de los Muertos is time for a feast that honors the lives of ancestors with arcs of brightly colored marigolds, candlelight processions, reverance and offerings, deeply grounded in cultural heritage.

On Espejos de Aztlán, we´ll visit this celebration through the eyes of photographer Ann Murdy who just published “On the path of Marigolds. Living traditions of México´s Day of the Dead” and in a conversation with Dr.  Tey Marianna Nunn,  Director of the Art Museum at the  National Hispanic Culturar Center, hosted by Cristina Baccin.
