New Día de Muertos Exhibit Opens at the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot Remember Me Exhibit Sign

There is a brand new exhibit that has opened today at the Mexico pavilion in Epcot and features the work of prominent Mexican and Mexican-American artists. The ‘Remember Me!’ La Celebración del Día de Muertos gallery exhibit examines the customs of Día de Muertos. Día de Muertos is a two-day celebration; one day honors departed children and the other day honors departed adults. The celebration takes place on November 1st and 2nd each year and includes colorful parades, festivals, energetic music, and delicious Mexican cuisine.



Guests can experience the stunning workmanship of the significant cultural festival with artwork that includes papel picado, sugar skulls, paper sculptures, and pre-Hispanic items that have been borrowed from several museums to showcase the early history of this celebration.

“The gallery also highlights four pieces of artwork and explores the artists’ unique processes and inspiration. One such piece, a sculpture group titled Bridal Couple, was created by a father and son in Mexico City whose family has been hand-making this type of celebratory art for more than 300 years. When it debuts next week, Bridal Couple will be the centerpiece of the gallery with four sculptures ranging from 2.5-10 feet tall.”
