El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican celebration that honors deceased family members with a colorful, exciting, traditional celebration. The CIELO department is happy to bring this annual holiday to Baltimore to remember our loved ones who passed away but stay in our hearts. So, dress up, paint your face, and join us for a family procession with the gigantic Catrin and Catrina puppets, a Mariachi band, and neighbors to walk from Patterson Park to Creative Alliance!

On Saturday, November 12th we invite Baltimore to wander through both Creative Alliance buildings to experience the best of Creative Alliance and see highlights of what is to come! 

We can’t think of a better way to celebrate than open opening all our doors so you, your family, friends, and neighbors can dance, eat, create, and move your way through the day! Get crafty with the Artesanas in the beautiful storefront classroom, watch cooking demonstrations from many countries in the teaching kitchen, and pop into a salsa, capoeira, or hip-hop lesson in the dance studio. The historic Patterson with its shiny new refinished marquee is also open! Listen to Sidewalk Serenades in the BUS stop, grab a cocktail in the Marquee Lounge, visit the exhibitions and meet our NEW Resident Artists in their studios. This is just a taste of what the Creative Alliance team has in store for the day. There’s even some tasty hot chocolate!
