10 giant, vibrantly colored skulls on display at Discovery Green

The pieces are meant to give viewers an new appreciation of life while honoring our lost loved ones. Featured artists include Luz Gamboa, Camila Orleansky, Cecilia Maafs and others.

It is a free exhibit that will run from Oct. 6 – Nov. 7 2021. The skulls will be staged Discovery Green and along Avenida de las Americas.

The skulls are reminiscent of Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, a two-day Mexican holiday where families remember and pray for those who have died.

In line with the theme, Houston artist Angel Quesada will create an alter where park visitors can leave copies photos or mementos of loved ones. .
