The Bellevue Art Museum has an exhibit opening April 13, 2018 that is a must-see. Printmaker José Guadalupe Posada’s (1852-1913) work will be on display at the museum until August 19. He is best known for his well-dressed calaveras (skeletons) and Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) illustrations that were published on handbills to announce the celebrations of the day. Posada has been considered by many to be “the father of modern Mexican art.”
Come see José Guadalupe Posada and the Mexican Penny Press exhibition with the whole family. The first Friday of the month is free at the Bellevue Art Museum, but you can see the exhibition any day of the week at no cost with museum passes from the King County Library.
