A whimsical paper mache’ skeleton adorns a display for celebrating the Day of the Dead, a popular Hispanic tradition, similar to All Saints Day, to honor deceased relatives and friends. This year’s exhibition will include selections from “Frutos Latinos,” an exhibition displayed at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville beginning November 7, 2014 with special activities throughout the evening.
