Between Life & Death: Art and the Afterlife offers a glimpse into this mysterious passage through American, European, and Mexican works of art from the collection. Join Wadsworth director Matthew Hargraves, curator Vanessa Sigalas, and artist Carlos Hernández Chávez as they explore the exhibition and reflect on an ofrenda, a traditional Mexican memorial alter, created by Chávez to celebrate Día de Muertos, the Day of the Dead. Free with admission.
