Día de Muertos (Day of Dead) Celebration
Día de Muertos (Day of Dead) is a Mexican celebration of life to remember deceased loved ones. This year, in partnership with Maria Garcia of Revolución Coffee House, we've reimagined the festivities.
We will be hosting appointment-based viewings of folkloric art, altars, artist interviews, food, and more, in our our Lobby and Mezzanine. This week-long event will highlight the culture and history of Mexican communities and celebrate how the Day of Dead brings families, friends, and communities together to honor the past.
For public safety and Covid-19 precautions, we will be offering 20-minute appointments. Households (or pods) of 6 will be allowed into the space one at a time to explore the art and festivities.
Appointments are available during the following time slots:
Tuesday, October 27, 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Wednesday, October 28, 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Thursday, October 29, 3 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Friday, October 30, 3 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Maria Garcia is the proud owner of Revolución Coffee House. With experience in the food industry back in Palm Springs, California, Maria relocated to Portland. As a former employee of the Mexican Consulate in Portland, her diverse background and passion is currently funneled into growing her business. She enjoys cultural events and small business development, which drives the creativity behind Revolución. The style of product, including the traditional Mexican warm beverages and desserts made by her sister, Zulema, and cookies made by her mom, Silvia, are influenced by her passion for art, culture, cooking, and folklore. She believes there is a niche in the well-known Portland coffee scene for these products, coffee drinking, and café culture in México and Central America.
