The Day of the Dead, Dia de Muertos, is a Mexican holiday dating back hundreds of years. Celebrated throughout Mexico, and around the world in other cultures, the holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have passed.
Particularly celebrated in Mexico, the celebration takes place on November 1 and 2. Traditionally the holiday includes offerings of sugar skulls and marigolds to honour the deceased.
To celebrate this year, we are curating an Art Exhibition to be held at our Gastown location. Working directly with Ricardo Sosa of Revolutionario Design, he has found time outside of his busy schedule managing our Flagship Gastown location to create limited edition one of a kind hand beaded Skulls, along with specially design Livestock tee shirts to compliment the Exhibited Skulls.
Both the skulls and tees will be available for purchase the night of the event. The Art Exhibition will take place Friday November 1st at our Gastown location from 9pm-12am, space is limited - arrive early to join us at the store. The after party will be hosted at Fortune Sound Club.
