In case you didn’t know, Pixar has a movie coming out this Thanksgiving holiday called Coco. Well, in an obvious attempt to tie in the movie with the theme parks, Disney is introducing a brand new exhibit for the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot called ‘Remember Me!’ La Celebración del Día de Muertos.
The exhibit features artwork of prominent Mexican and Mexican-American artists that explores the traditions of Día de Muertos. (The main premise behind Coco.) For those who are unaware, Día de los Muertos is a two-day celebration that honors departed children and adults and takes place on November 1st and 2nd each year.
The Remember Me! La Celebración del Día de Muertos exhibit features beautiful artwork including papel picado, sugar skulls and paper sculptures, as well as pre-hispanic items that are on loan from various museums. The gallery also highlights four pieces of artwork and explores the artists’ processes with the centerpiece being a piece called Bridal Couple with four sculptures ranging from 2.5-10 feet tall.
There is no end date for the ‘Remember Me!’ La Celebración del Día de Muertos exhibit. I don’t know about you, but I look forward to experiencing it in person on my next trip.
