Zarco Guerrero: Día de los Muertos

The Museum welcomes sculptor, muralist, storyteller and performance artist Zarco Guerrero for a Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) presentation. Expect hilarious and moving tales, with original characters including: the poetry spouting “El Vato Poeta,” the flirtatious “La Comadre,” the clueless “Special Ed,” the wise “El Abuelito,” and other beloved roles that Zarco has created. This lecture will be an introduction to the Museum’s annual three-day event “The Magic of Mexican Artistry,” March 8-10, 2024.


This presentation was made possible through the Arizona Humanities AZ Speaks Program.
