Aside from Halloween, there is another major holiday this week celebrated in Mexican culture that honors the deceased. Dia de los Muertos begins Wednesday with dozens of events happening around Sacramento through the weekend.
The California Museum opened a new exhibit this month entitled Arte y Almas, which explores the Latino fight for civil rights in California and honors many of the pioneers in this movement through artwork. Visual artists Luis R. Campos-Garcia (a.k.a. "Lurac") and Oscar Magallanes describe their contributions to the exhibit with Executive Director Amanda Meeker explaining the curation of all the works.
