An exhibit focused on remembering departed loved ones is on display at the Surrey Museum, 17710 56A Ave.
Days of the Dead features the work of more than 200 Surrey students who submitted a range of media to offer insight into the heritage, identity and beliefs of the younger generation. The works were inspired by the Latin American Day of the Dead celebration, a 3,000-year-old festival that emphasizes life and death as part of a natural cycle.
Visitors to the Surrey Museum exhibit will be greeted by a colourful ofrenda created by curator Javier Romero, complete with artefacts from Mayan and Aztec cultures as well as pottery, ceramics and prints from Mexican artisans.
The exhibit, presented in partnership with the Surrey School District, is on display through Dec. 23. A Mexican Cultural Fiesta planned for 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26 is to feature traditional dances, live mariachi music and Latin crafts.
