The Art of the Day of the Dead
Originally from Veracruz, Mexico, sculptor and painter Adan Utrera examines his dreams and celebrates his heritage through the creation of his colorful alebrijes; a Mexican folk art made from paper mache, and his imaginative works on canvas. Utrera has created a new series of pieces specifically for this year's festival with one based on the Catrina; the iconic female skeleton originally developed by 19th Century printmaker Jose Posada and now adopted into the imagery used during the celebration.
In addition, Mexican alebrijes created by 5th grade students from Breckinridge Elementary will be featured in our LASC New Children's Gallery. These works were created during a workshop with artist Adan Utrera.
