‘Remember Me!’ La Celebración del Día de Muertos is Now Open at the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot

This new gallery exhibit explores the traditions of Día de Muertos, featuring the work of prominent Mexican and Mexican-American artists. This two-day celebration – one day to honor departed children and one day to honor departed adults – takes place on November 1st and 2nd each year with colorful parades, festivals, lively music and Mexican cuisine.

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.

Check out some photos below for a look at this new exhibit.
