Ohio State first SPPO Día de los Muertos celebration took place during the first week of November, 2016. The community event included a screening of the film The Book of Life at the Gateway Film Center, calavera poetry, a procession on campus, art exhibits at Hagerty Hall and Thompson Library, and visits from scholars and artists from around the Midwest. The celebration was open to the public. SPPO Outreach was extremely excited to bring this cultural event to the greater community of Columbus!
Partners for this event included LASER, the Center for Latin American Studies, University Libraries, and Latina/o Studies at Ohio State.
