HOUSTON — San Jacinto College will host “Dia de los Muertos, a Celebration of Life, Culture and Creativity” on Wednesday, Oct. 31 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Dr. Charles Grant Fine Arts Center, located on the North Campus at 5800 Uvalde Road.
San Jacinto College instructors Joe Clark, Ken Luce, Olga Nava, and Lorena Horton, alongside students from the art, Spanish and English departments, have combined creative efforts to create an exhibition of Sugar Skulls, Ofrendas, and Retablos in celebration of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a traditional Mexican celebration that honors the departed.
The free event is open to the public, and provides a safe place for children to fill their trick-or-treat bags with candy.
