Chicanos en Mictlán: Día de Los Muertos in California : October 6-December 31, 2000, the Mexican Museum, San Francisco, California
"Originated by The Mexican Museum, Chicanos en Mictlán outlines the origins and influences of Day of the Dead observances in California through works by over fifty artists. It is the first survey to examine the transformation that Día de los Muertos has undergone in California, recounting the impact and evolution of Day of the Dead among Chicano artists. It focuses on the impact that two small cultural centers, Self Help Graphics in Los Angeles and Galería de la Raza in San Francisco, have had in introducing Day of the Dead to the public."--laprensa-sandiego
