Costume Party! 

When: Fri., Oct. 29 2010

Don't come to Galeria Quetzal looking for paintings of Frank Sinatra on black velvet. The place is a little island of Hispanic culture in the middle of Little Italy, specializing in fine and folk art from Mexico, Peru, and Guatemala. This time of year, that means a whole bunch of Dia de Los Muertos — or "Day of the Dead," the Mexican holiday honoring the spirits of dead friends, relatives, and ancestors in an upbeat and celebratory way. In addition to folk objects like candles and sugar skulls, the gallery features playful paintings of skeletons by Cleveland artist George C. Kocar. From 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. today and tomorrow, Galeria Quetzal invites you to celebrate the culture's traditional Hispanic food, drink, and music, and show off costumes in the spirit of the Day of the Dead. Prizes will be awarded for best skeleton, most creative, and most authentic Mexican garb. The parties are free, and the exhibits run through November 10. Galeria Quetzal is at 12400 Mayfield Rd. in Little Italy. Call 216-421-8223 or go to galeriaquetzal.com for more information. — Anastasia Pantsios
