2017 Dia de los Muertos Celebration

Laney College celebrated Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) on Thursday, Nov. 2 at the lobby of the Tower Building.

Day of the Dead is a traditional Mexican holiday that commemorates the lives of those who’ve passed away.

The event at Laney featured a reception at the June Steingard Gallery which currently has a Dia de los Muertos exhibit that ends Nov. 16. Dinner was also served and participants were entertained by a traditional Danza Mexica (Aztec dance).

The event was primarily coordinated by faculty Manuel Alcala, Arturo Davila, Leslee Stadford, and Alicia Caballero-Christenson.
