FOR TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS, HUMAN COMMUNITIES HAVE HONORED THEIR DEAD AND PREPARED THEM FOR THE
AFTERLIFE. FROM EGYPTIAN MUMMIES TO INDONESIAN CLIFF BURIALS, FROM HALLOWEEN TO THE MEXICAN DAY OF THE
DEAD, THIS PROVOCATIVE NEW EXHIBIT INVITES YOU INTO THE CELEBRATIONS AND ANCIENT RITUALS WHERE THE DEAD
ARE ALWAYS WELCOMED, EVEN IF DEATH ITSELF IS NOT.
