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 four times a year.

If you’re a Day of the Dead aficionado, check out the expo this Saturday and Sunday, April 17 and 18, 2010. 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. 

The event includes artist demonstrations, music, face painting, paranormal and metaphysical experts on hand to share their knowledge, and ghost story author Antonio R. Garcez will be in attendance to sign books.

The free Arté de Muertos Expo will be held at the Albuquerque Garden Center on:

  • Saturday April 17 from noon to 6pm
  • Sunday April 18 from 10am to 5pm

Albuquerque Garden Center is located at 10120 Lomas Blvd. NE, off Eubank Blvd and I-40
