Museum Nights: Day of the Dead /Día de los Muertos, 6-9pm at The Harn Museum
Looking ahead to Halloween, we celebrate Day of the Dead with the Center for Latin American Studies. In addition to an altar in remembrance and celebration of dead friends and family, there will be art activities, musical performance and free food. Among the presentations is a choral and period instrument performance of “Missa Ego flos campi” by 16th century composer Juan Gutierrez de Padilla, who was born in Spain and emigrated to Mexico. Extending this inter-cultural celebration of life from beginning to end, the evening will also feature activities in the Asian Gallery’s “spooky” exhibition, Things that Go Bump in the Night. www.harn.ufl.edu
