Dia de los Muertos


This year marks the sixteenth annual Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration at El Centro de la Raza. Beacon Arts is honored to participate once again by creating an ofrenda, or altar, to remember a local artist who has passed away. 


This year’s theme is: Live! Mask up! Stand Up & Speak Up! / Vive! ¡Usa tu Mascara! Levántate y Alza tu voz! As a COVID conscious event it will be online November 2nd at 5:30 and will have an outside ofenda for those who have passed from covid by the garden on the westside. We are very pleased that our volunteer artists, Doug Reed and Ashlee Staub, have chosen to honor the Life and Art of John T. Williams, First Nations wood carver, killed by police violence ten years ago. 


Please call 206-957-4621 for more information and to make arrangements to view the celebration in person on Monday November 2nd through November 18th, or view them virtually by going to or on FB
