Dia De Los Muertos is a Mexican holiday celebrated around the world. Here in Rockford, we commemorated the day with a gallery opening featuring many local artists, showcasing their original work that reflected the aesthetic, cultural and spiritual themes of the Day of the Dead. And of course, live music, free beer and art for sale made for a great party. The gallery will be open at FotoEnvy Studios (317 W Jefferson St. Rockford, IL) every Friday from 3pm-5pm.
As my friend Jon Candiotta said, "No one in this town has an excuse to say, 'I'm bored.'"
