For 42 years Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG) has organized one of the most popular Día de los Muertos events in Los Angeles and perhaps the oldest Day of the Dead commemoration in the country. This program is unique in that it provides the community with a season of activities from August to November, to celebrate and prepare for Día de los Muertos.

Much thanks to our amazing team of volunteers and major sponsors; Bank of America, AARP, Grand Park, Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
