Every year the museum hosts an international art exhibit showcasing altars from different artists to remember those who are no longer living among us. The museum also hosts a community festival and invites all attendees to learn and celebrate with activities at the National Museum of Mexican Art.

This year our tradition continues utilizing Harrison Park for an outdoor festival. It is a fun and memorable event with Pan de Muerto (Day of the Dead Bread), altar demonstrations, live performances, face painting, art activities, and much more.

This year we are making this event more interactive with an animation that will be projected on to the museum itself. On the outside of our building we will be projecting photographs of deceased loved ones that you can upload. All photographs can be uploaded on this site, and we will review for entry. Entrees will then be processed for a time frame and your uploaded image will be projected outdoors and presented to the community on the evening of October 30th at the National Museum of Mexican Art.

Please note: This project is created with complete respect for the lives that have come before us. This site is manually monitored and will not allow any photographs with nudity, profanity or any other inappropriate imagery. We do have the right to reject photographs with any inappropriate imagery used at our own discretion. Sorry no photos of pets will be allowed. If you upload a photograph to this website we will use it to be projected on the the night of October 30th.
