Enjoy a lively mariachi performance by La Victoria, an all-women mariachi trio, in honor of Day of the Dead (2–3 pm). Then, marvel at fantastic sculptures made by contemporary Mexican artists in Intersections and yarn paintings in The Spun Universe. Afterward, try your hand at drawing calaveras (skulls) on your face or a mask with fun face paints and pastels. This event is presented in conjunction with Big Draw LA, a public drawing celebration spanning Southern California and linked to Big Draw events worldwide during the month of October.
