Linda Vallejo, a legacy artist for Self Help Graphics, spoke at Pierce College about the tradition of Dia de los Muertos and Self Help Graphics & Art. The event kicked off at 6 p.m. at the art building in room 3300.
Vallejo spoke about the tradition of Dia de los Muertos, otherwise known as Day of the Dead. It is a Mexican holiday that begins Oct. 31 and ends Nov. 2. Vallejo spoke about how the holiday is about remembering and honoring loved ones that have passed away, but also celebrating life as well.
“What I am hoping that everyone gets from it is that they take a moment to think about someone that they lost that they really loved, and take a moment to remember them and possibly make a small shrine in a home, and maybe think about them and speak about their memory,” Vallejo said.
