For two weeks, traditional and contemporary altars and art created by local artists and schoolchildren will be featured throughout the museum and in downtown Boise to celebrate Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). This year’s Dia de los Muertos celebration and exhibit is bigger than ever. Altars will be displayed throughout the museum as well as downtown at the City of Boise’s Sesqui-shop at 1008 Main St. The museum is also partnering with Wingtip Press and Boise State University to create giant woodblock banners printed with a steamroller. These striking banners, printed at our steamroller party on Oct 12, will be displayed at the museum, Sesqui-Shop, and local businesses, throughout the week. Join us for our grand Dia de los Muertos Celebration on Nov. 2nd from 5 to 9 pm and our procession from the Sequi-Shop to the museum at 6 pm. The museum is closed on Sunday and Monday.
