Every year, it seems that the most popular exhibit at the free National Museum of Mexican Art is the the Day of the Dead display, which fascinates adults and children with altars, skull sculptures and colorful art in many media celebrating the dearly departed in weird and wonderful ways. This free exhibit, “Camino a Casa: Coming Home on Day of the Dead,” is the largest Day of the Dead exhibition in the nation and includes works of art from Mexico and the United States. Programs are held in Spanish and English, and include public tours, children’s art classes and sugar skull demonstrations.
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays to Sundays through Dec. 13 at 1852 W. 19th St., Chicago. Free admission. (312) 738-1503 or nationalmuseumofmexicanart.org.
