October Feature Window: Bonnie Lopez, Calaveras

  • Location: Illinois Artisans, Chicago, Chicago
  • Date: Tuesday, October 01, 2013 through Thursday, October 31, 2013 , 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

"Skeletal figures (Calaveras), toys and sugar skulls are found in abundance in the market place. In the days before the celebration, graves are cleaned, painted, decorated and adorned with food, flowers, candles and photographs. What takes place in the cemetery is a "family reunion" for the living and the dead. It is when the souls of the dead return to this world to be with family and friends once again. The belief is that, at this time, the two worlds coexist."
