The Hispanic League, the Museum of Anthropology and Sawtooth School collaborated to create this special outing celebrating the Day of the Dead. The excursion will start in the morning at the Museum of Anthropology for an educational presentation and guided tour of the exhibit Life After Death: The Day of the Dead in Mexico. The exhibit’s centerpiece, a traditional Mexican ofrenda or home altar, will serve as the backdrop to teach participants about the celebration’s history, observances, and folk art. After an authentic Mexican meal at the Museum over the lunch hour, participants will move to Sawtooth School for a workshop where veteran mask maker Martina Moore will guide them through each step of the creative process to produce a Day of the Dead inspired mask. Participants will have the option of displaying their masks in the Museum of Anthropology’s exhibition through early December. The excursion is open to ages 14 and over. The fee is $50 per person.
