Originally our blog followed the documentary film Searching for Posada--ART and Revolutions and it still does but now reports the latest José Guadalupe Posada events, exhibitions, film screenings and more from the Posada Art Foundation and others! www.posada-art-foundation.com
Posada's calaveras visited the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA for their Dia de los Muertos observance. It was the first time for the Winchester to sponsor such an event. There was an altar and a variety of original images from the New World Prints Collection. Sarah Winchester might have found them disturbing as she believed that the spirits of the dead killed by the guns her husband created might come back to find her. Thanks to Posada's calavera images perhaps they did in some ways!
