To celebrate the return of the festival after a 2-year break, the theme of the 2022 Youth Art Exhibition a is
“El Regreso de las Almas / The Return of the Souls.” On Dia de los Muertos, the deceased are depicted in skeletal form full of vitality as they were in life – talking, laughing, celebrating, and enjoying life. Works of art should address the return of the souls on the Days of the Dead – coming home, reuniting with loved ones, reveling in festive activities, and rejoicing in happiness.
