Why celebrate Día de los Muertos only once a year when you can celebrate it all year long? That’s the philosophy behind the Arté de Muertos Expo, held three times a year.

If you’re a Day of the Dead aficionado, check out the expo this Saturday and Sunday, July 18 and 19 (2009), from 9:00am – 5:00pm both days. Admission and parking are FREE!

The expo features all manner of Day of the Dead folk and fine art, but they have a bunch of other stuff, too, like shadow boxes, jewelry, wood carvings, ceramics, and wind chimes. Most of the art is exhibited by the maker, so you can chat directly with the artists as you browse. Also on hand will be paranormal metaphysical experts willing to share their knowledge. Artist demonstrations, live music, and a book signing by Antonio Garcez round out the event.

The Arté de Muertos Expo will be held at Santa Ana Star Casino, Santa Ana Pueblo, NM. Take I-25 north to US 550 and head west. You’ll see it. More info: (505) 771-3307.
