Holocaust Museum Houston Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with Community Art Workshop


HOUSTON, Texas (KIAH) – If you’re looking for ways to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, the Houston Holocaust Museum Something very special has in store for you by celebrating Dia de los Muertos with a community art workshop hosted by artist Theresa Escobedo.

On Saturday, October 9 at 11 a.m., registered participants can participate in this free family event where participants can make sugar skulls, paper flowers, and create Papel picado that will be included in a community ofrenda (altar) to display in the Museum from October 18 to November 12.

The community art workshop is free and open to the public, but prior registration is required. Spanish speaking educators will be on hand to help with this family program.

Escobedo is a multidisciplinary artist, curator and arts administrator active in Houston. As an artist, his work intersects with ancestry, history and spiritualism, and combines elements of the artists’ mixed cultural heritage to demonstrate and ultimately represent broad ancestral influences and cosmopolitan spiritual perspectives.

The Holocaust Museum Houston is located at 5401 Carolina St. in Houston.

Face masks are mandatory for all customers over 2 years old. Free masks are available at the security desk.
