Dancing, Mexican food and ephemeral art were all part of the celebration at the multicultural center of HSU last Thursday for the Mexican holiday of Día De Los Muertos. Food was provided free for students by Los Giles and paid for by the multicultural center. Local artist Lilia Valencia Duran created an ephemeral sawdust dye art piece in collaboration with students who wanted to participate. Ballet Folklorico De Humboldt put on a traditional Mexican dance performance. Vice President of the Ballet Folklorico De Humboldt club Daniel Gomez said the dances and attire for the dance performance were from varying parts of Mexican regions including Veracruz, Jalisco and Sinaloa.
