La Calavera Catrina (the Elegant Skull) wishes you feliz Día de los Muertos and hopes you can join Latin American Studies at the speaker presentations after the sugar skull face painting.

Join Latin American Studies to celebrate Día de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead, on Wednesday, Nov. 1, in the Humanities and Social Sciences Building, 5:00–6:15 p.m., and Thursday, Nov. 2, in the Humanities and Social Sciences Building, 3:00–4:15 p.m., by having a sugar skull painted on your entire face or part of your face. The sugar skulls that are created are to resemble the deceased. Día de los Muertos is a natural cycle of life. It helps the living celebrate the loved ones who have passed on. The face painting is free and open to all in the IUP community and Indiana community.
