THREE DAYS, TWO CULTURES, ONE ART SHOW Design studio, Paradigm Shift, hosts “Esqueletos & Escaleras,” a Día de Los Muertos art showcase, in the heart of El Paso’s Art District downtown.

El Paso design studio, Paradigm Shift, and an artist collective from Juarez Descatrinados, invite you to celebrate our borderland values and traditions with Esqueletos & Escaleras, a three-day art show dedicated to celebrating Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), going down downtown, at the Artspace El Paso Lofts Gallery, on 601 N. Oregon St.

Over the three days, the exhibition will showcase 40-plus curated art pieces centered around the themes and iconography of the colorful Mexican holiday. The Artspace gallery (on the corner of Oregon and Wyoming) will house paintings, photographs, engravings, drawings, and sculptures honoring the holiday, including a 6.5 ft. tall statue of a “Catrina,” the dapper skeleton that is the referential symbol of death in Mexican culture.

The Esqueletos & Escaleras schedule:

Saturday, October 29th – 12 pm to 9 pm As part of downtown El Paso’s annual Día de Los Muertos festival and parade. Opening Ceremony at 1 pm. Featuring music, vendors, free food, free wine, and free treats from Howdy Homemade Ice Cream.
