Muertos on 10/13/12 from 4-9 pm.

to remember loved ones who have passed on. The celebration takes place on the 1st and 2nd of
November in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day.

This show will feature bright traditional Mexican folk Day of the Dead art and crazy Zombie art. We will
also have an interactive altar, a traditional craft table and a S'mores Bar.

Confirmed artists for the show are as follows: LaLa Ortiz, Jill Jordan, Jill Allyn Stafford, Jenn Young,
Tony Allen, Kathi Briefer-Gose, Madeline Smith, Lana Bullard, Yoli Manzo, Miek Snique, Gloria
Gandy, Eric Goodman, Bri Marie, face painter Elysha-Blue and TJ Lev.

Admittance to the show is free, but donations are always welcome and appreciated!
