Don’t miss the biggest KIDS ROCKWELL event of the year, held annually on the first Sunday of November. Throughout the month of October, middle school Spanish students from the surrounding area visit the Museum to create decorative objects for a Dia de los Muertos student ofrenda that is on view in The Rockwell’s Student Gallery.
The project culminates in The Rockwell’s Annual Dia de los Muertos Family Celebration. Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday steeped in tradition that honors friends and family members through art, dance and festive foods. Join us for an afternoon to decorate sugar skulls, make paper flowers, try traditional foods and learn about this special Mexican holiday.
