Downtown South Bend is partnering with a coalition of arts organizations on a three-day celebration of Latinx culture focused around the Day of the Dead, a holiday which honors and celebrate the lives of loved ones that have passed away. The celebration includes musical performances, poetry, and special presentations at the Morris Performing Arts Center, La Casa de Amistad, and the Civil Rights Heritage Center. Building off the success of Mural Mania 2022 which added five new murals to our community, DTSB proposes adding a mural downtown designed by Latinx artist Federico Rodriguez as part of the Day of the Dead celebration. The mural would enhance the downtown through public art while recognizing the contributions of the Latinx community.
