Brighton Dia de los Muertos


The Grupo Azteca Huitzilopochtli from Mexico opened Brighton's Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration with a stunning performance wearing feather headdresses and colorful costumes representing Anahuac's indigenous people. The ritual dance with repetitive rhythm and movement in a meditative state, communicating energy to god, is a form of prayer.

The Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrated its opening reception featuring a 70-piece art exhibit from local artists at The Armory Performance Arts Center on October 28.

The exhibit included a performance by a group of Aztec Dancers with music entertainment by a DJ and a poetry reading. The reception ended with a performance by Denver-based flamenco guitarist El Javi.

The family-friendly celebration featured face painting and decorating for all ages and tacos and free hot chocolate. Its exhibit is in collaboration with the Chicano Humanities & Art Council with support from the Brighton Arts Commission. The exhibition will be on display through November 16.
