Our York Street gardens will close at 3 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 24 for Fête des Fleurs. More early closings.

One of Día de los Muertos’ most recognizable figures, La Catrina was born out of Mexican social satire depicting the upper classes and is still depicted in art today in celebration of the holiday. Artist Ricardo Soltero’s 8-foot tall figures represent seven figures from Mexican culture.

La Calavera Catrina was exhibited at Denver Botanic Gardens in the fall of 2017. See flyer for additional details. For more information, contact exhibits@botanicgardens.org.
