Dia de los Muertos - Bare Hands Gallery


Next Tuesday, November 2, my Birmingham readers need to be at Bare Hands Gallery (109 Richard Arrington Blvd) for the annual Dia de los Muertos celebration.  This is one of my favorite festivals each year,  but I'll be working the the polls for the election held the same day, so I regret I'll miss it.  I plan to visit Bare Hands on Wednesday before they remove the alters etc. and get a few photos for you.

Day of the dead. I think Mexico has days like this. Didn't know Alabama did.

Yikes. I can hear someone singing, "Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones" in the background.

I always thought "Day of the Dead" referred to test day in my 8th grade American History class.

We talked about - Dia de los Muertos last night in my ESL class. My students are from Mexico, Peru, and Guatamala. Mexico celebrates on the 2nd; Peru and Guatamala on the 1st.

Make sure you do get some photo. Lady in red, so vibrant needs a decent meal though.

Looks like the deceased of Alabama are ready to party. You're doing the right thing Tuesday, though. Don't let any Tea Party election fraud slip through.
