Kids in the Courtyard: Life Drawing Meets Dead Dancing: A Day of the Dead Celebration

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.

Sunday, October 24, 2010
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Fowler Museum Courtyard
Fowler Museum at UCLA
Los Angeles, CA 90095

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 kkkoktu (Korean funerary figures) on a stick, face painting, and gallery tours, as well as a pan dulce and hangwa tasting.
