Dia de los Muertos

When: Oct. 26-Nov. 27 2012

Her face is unforgettable, though she goes by many names: La Flaca, La Huesuda, La Pelona, and, most often, La Muerte. Starting tonight and lasting until Nov. 27, Cottonwood Center for the Arts (427 E. Colorado Ave., tinyurl.com/cwmuertos) pays homage to Lady Death in a Día de los Muertos exhibit. Tonight's 5-to-8:30 reception includes traditional dancing, a fashion show, local music, and authentic food from the "Tamale Lady" and Cake Crumbs Bakery. As Octavio Paz describes, the Mexican has no qualms surrounding death and "jokes about it, caresses it, sleeps with it, celebrates it." So come get in touch with Lady Death, make sugar skulls, and enjoy. — Kiki Lenihan
