Kids in the Courtyard: Life Drawing Meets Dead Dancing: A Day of the Dead Celebration
Family Program
All day long
Sun, October 24, 2010

Join us for a Mexican-Korean fusion Day of the Dead inspired by artworks in Intersections: Worlds Arts, Local Lives and Korean Funerary Figures: Companions for the Journey to the Other World. At the Fowler’s annual family celebration of Dia de los Muertos, watch and be amazed as the Filipe Linares’ papier-mâché sculpture La Calavera Don Quijote comes to life as part of a series of live re-enactments of Jose Guadelupe Posada’s iconic skeletal caricatures.

UCLA arts students will lead families in introductory life-drawing sessions of these living tableaus. Other activities include making paper doll calacas (Mexican skeletons) and kkoktu (Korean funerary figures) on a stick and face painting. Come sip hot chocolate and taste traditional Mexican and Korean sweets!
