Colourful finale for Mexico Week at the University of Southampton – a spectacular altar for Day of the Dead


Today marks the final day of a colourful week of celebrations for Mexico Week and the special ‘UK-Mexico Year 2015’ at the University of Southampton. As is now annual tradition, the Avenue Campus has hosted a beautifully decorated altar in honour of the Day of the Dead, created in collaboration with students and staff from across the University. This year’s altar is accompanied with a striking art exhibition entitled ‘El Otro Muro’ (The Other Wall) – the title refers to the wall that divides Mexico and the United States.

Don’t miss your chance to see the altar and exhibition before Wednesday 4th November in the North Corridor!
