Dia de los Muertos - The Legacy of Posada

Hollywood Forever Cemetery is proud to present: THE 18TH ANNUAL DIA DE LOS MUERTOS FESTIVAL THE LEGACY OF POSADA – EL LEGADO DE POSADA Saturday, October 28th, 2017: NOON - MIDNIGHT www.ladayofthedead.com For our 18th Annual Dia de los Muertos, we tip our feather and flower adorned hat to the Mexican artist Jose Guadalupe Posada. Over 100 years ago, Posada gave us many of the foundational images of Dia de los Muertos that are still venerated today and which have become treasured images of Mexican culture and identity. J.G. Posada reminds us that art is power – political and social speech – mass produced by the printing presses and now social media. Posada’s La Catrina asks us to embrace the beauty and grace inherent in facing our own death and the inevitable loss of those we love. By facing loss with love, and art, we find transcendence.
