Flight of the Ancestors • Vuelo de los ancestros is the 32nd Annual Day of the Dead exhibition hosted by Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts. The creativity of artists, teachers, artisans, and overall community members has contributed to Day of the Dead evolving into our most iconic exhibit of the year. We carry this tradition forward by welcoming people to express personal, political, and spiritual contemplations of life and death. This year, we have asked people to use butterflies or moths as a metaphor that showcases death as an integral part of the cycle of life.

Flight of the Ancestors • Vuelo de los ancestros is comprised of 18 artists who showcase a unique multidisciplinary Day of the Dead exhibit that fuses tradition with contemporary installations.

MCCLA dedicates Flight of the Ancestors • Vuelo de los ancestros to René Yañez, who played a pivotal role in establishing the celebration of Day of the Dead in San Francisco. For many years René curated “Rooms of the Dead” exhibit at MCCLA for the community to use as a platform that addressed political issues that inflict death towards our communities.

We open our doors to anyone interested in joining us with related events that are in conjunction with the Flight of the Ancestors exhibit.
