CSUSB’s Association of Latino Faculty, Staff and Students will host the annual Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) event on Saturday, Nov. 6, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art. Registration required.
RAFFMA presents Festival de Calaveras, a virtual art exhibit with calaveras, or skulls, decorated by CSUSB community members. Calaveras are now showcased on the RAFFMA website and will be auctioned in-person Nov. 6. RSVP required to attend auction.
The university will honor National Hispanic Heritage Month with a number of live and virtual events to celebrate the history, heritage, culture and contributions of Latino Americans.
RAFFMA's Festival de Calaveras was featured on Spectrum News 1, and Brian Levin (criminal justice) discussed the 'red flags' in the comments made by a California 50th District Congressional Candidate about the group Defend East County.
Visit RAFFMA’s website and @RAFFMAcsusb social media pages to view the virtual Festival de Calaveras exhibition. All calaveras will be auctioned Oct. 30 and Oct. 31 to raise money for student scholarships.
Many of the monthlong series of events will be virtual as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, that is not preventing CSUSB from offering a wide range of programs to celebrate the month.
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, RAFFMA presents Festival de Calaveras, where participants decorate a calavera in September and show off their designs virtually in October. Contactless calavera pickup will take place at RAFFMA in Lot M on Sept. 15 and 16. Participants will have approximately two weeks to decorate and return the completed calavera to RAFFMA on Sept. 28 and 29.
