Each of the four nights will include dancing, poetry, and live music by the Guanaxtecos from Sierra de Guanajuato, two special exhibitions commemorating the 100th anniversary of José Guadalupe Posada’s death, and workshops with Mexican artist Martín Guevara Luna in the art studio. An ofrenda, constructed by local students to celebrate the holiday, will be on view October 29-November 2. The event is co-sponsored by Oak Hill School in conjunction with MEChA de UO, Adelante Sí, el Instituto de Cultura de Guanajuato, and el Instituto Estatal del Migrante Guanajuatense y sus familias.
