Make plans to join SAY Si as it hosts the 9th annual Muertitos Fest, a family-focused Dia de los Muertos festival that celebrates San Antonio’s rich Mexican-American culture. The 2015 theme is “Tree of Life: Storytelling & Rituals,” which is woven into the works of local artists, including student artists, and workshops offered during the festival.
Participants will enjoy an exhibition of student art, new work by local artists Kathy Sosa and Veronica Prida, a folk art exhibit that includes trees of life, alters to honor the departed, family art workshops, food booths, artisan stalls and live cultural performances.
SAY Si is a local organization that focuses on nurturing and educating San Antonio’s artistic youth.
The festival is free Friday, Nov. 6, from 6-10 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 7, from 12-4 p.m. A fundraising event takes place on Thursday, Nov. 5, from 7-10:30 p.m.; tickets are $40 at the door. The festival takes place at SAY Si, 1518 S. Alamo St. For more information, visit www.saysi.org.
