RC Art Gallery East Quadrangle Map
Visiting Artist Fulgencio Lazo will work with U-M students and community members to design and create two tapetes, or carpets of colored sand for Mexican Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrations. One will be created on the floor of the RC Art Gallery within East Quadrangle, located at 701 E. University Ave., and one at the Ann Arbor District Library at 343 South Fifth Ave.

There will be an opening reception at the RC Art Gallery, October 4th from 6-8pm, and attendees will have the opportunity to contribute ofrendas, or drawings, writings and paper flowers to a wall of remembrance installation for loved ones who have passed in celebration of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Refreshments will be served and Fulgencio will be present to give a short talk and answer questions.

The tapete and Día de los Muertos ofrendas will be on display to the public through October 18.
