Did you know La Catrina, the female skeleton wearing a fancy hat with feathers and current day icon of the Day of the Dead celebration, was originally created in a print by 19th century Mexican artist, José Guadalupe Posada? Learn about the artist and his lesser known works in a virtual presentation by Dr. Gloria Arjona, author of Posada’s Unknown Calaveras.
