Join us at SOMArts Cultural Center for the last chance to view and interact with the beautiful altars and installations in Illuminations: Dia de los Muertos 2011! The evening will include performance by the Oakland Improv Collective, a Dia de los Muertos Artist Market, and an opportunity to interact with many of the exhibiting artists.
There is a $6–10 suggested donation for entry to the closing celebration. Consider purchasing advance tickets to bypass the cash ticket line, which can be long due to the popularity of this event.
