“Cercano” (in Spanish) means closer to, or way to say together.  When a person is closer to you, like a family member or a close friend, we call that person a cercano or cercana.  That word can refer to a closer distance, but also to be closer even though we are not in the same space.  The Mexican Folk Art Collective is a project that started when COVID hit the world.  It is a small group of artists from different towns in Mexico and Mexican artists living in the USA.

Location: Keewaydin Farms (15270 Haucke Ln, Viola, Wisconsin, 54664.

Día de los Muertos, also known as the Day of the Dead, is a traditional Mexican cultural festival to honor loved ones who have passed away.

This free outdoor celebration offers modalities to honor loved ones and hands-on workshops to engage attendees in Mexican folk art.

Artists from the Mexican Folk Art Collective will share their experience through workshops and demonstrations with the community: Alejandra Jimenez (Folk Dance), Julieta Zavala (fashion designer), Julián and Adam Correa (muralists) , Jaqui Almaguer (visual artist), Andrea Muñiz (embroidery), Gabriela Marván  and Ceci Tejeda (cartoneras, paper maché artist).

This year, the altar will be offered to the Mexican environmentalists. Join us and be part of this celebration bringing flowers, fruits, food that your loved ones liked when they where alive, or a photo of them.
