The “El Velorio” (funeral wake/vigil) event is being brought to us by award winning artist and Los Angeles native Antonio Pelayo who is also the head of special effects at Disney studios, as founder and director of “El Velorio” Antonio’s vision is to create a space were artist can come together to celebrate and share their art around the central theme of the Day of the Dead whose origins trace back not just to Mexico but to very heart of this continent and its pre-Columbian ancestry. Since its beginnings in 2010, “El Velorio” has gained momentum steadily growing each year. Dedicated to showcasing up and coming artist and talent, “El Velorio” is a multicultural event that celebrates the cultural traditions of Day of the Dead featuring an art exhibition, live music, an altar installation and much more.
