Join Santa Monica Pier as they pay tribute to the cultural tradition of Dia de Los Muertos – Day of the Dead– with a two-day public art installation taking place from November 1st through November 2nd, 2022. The second annual Santa Monica Pier’s Dia de Los Muertos Celebration honors people, places, and ideas that are important to Santa Monican’s through free, family-friendly programming. Presented in partnership with the City of Santa Monica, Pico Youth & Family Center, and Mariasol, Santa Monica Pier’s Dia de Los Muertos Celebration is a community-oriented space located inside the Merry Go-Round building, inviting Pier-goers to contribute to the community altar made by local artists, Sylvia Sanchez and Daniel Alonso. This year, we will also be bringing back Letters of Life, an art installation where we ask members of the community to share their favorite Pier memories and anecdotes of family and friends who have passed.
