Event Details

In support of the 2022 Día de los Muertos Altar installation at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, we are looking for community support in creating Corazóns, inspired by traditional tin heart pieces, Milagros, El Corazon Loteria cards, sacred hearts, etc. We would love it if you would choose to participate in the creation of these hearts that will be combined to create a beautiful wall of remembrances and featuring Abuelita – the Corazón of the family. This combined display will be on public view October 28 through November 7, 2022, and the Festival on Sunday, October 30, 2022, in celebration of the Nelson-Atkins Día de los Muertos festivities.

Join us at the West Library in our craft room to decorate your own submission!  Supplies will be provided and it is open to all members of the community!
