Pat, who is going on 107 years old, says she was surprised that her difficulty breathing was caused by a heart problem, not her lungs.
The Duluth community celebrates Day of the Dead with an Exposition, an inclusive, cross-cultural event with an opening reception at Zeitgeist Arts. This year the national Mexican holiday Dia de Muertos falls on Oct. 31 – Nov 2. Over the three-day holiday, marked on the Catholic calendar there will be community gatherings, parades, puppetry, art exhibits and the traditional ofrendas, alter offerings to honor the dead.
Artists participating in the Zeitgeist Arts exposition are famous Mexican-American and Minnesota-based artists: Renan Cruz Dr. Swami Lucky Dougie Padilla, Mary Plaster, Jimmy Longoria and joining us here, McKnight Visual Artist Fellow Luis Fitch.
