I’ve always seen the Quad Cities as an exquisite blend of culture. From the work done by various organizations, to the wonderful music that graces our town, and the multiple celebrations of culture, it makes me a proud Quad Cities native and local English Language Learner (ELL) teacher. The Dia de Los Muertos event at the Figge at the end of October proved to be a hit, as several of my students and friends commented on the wonderful program put together for the Latin-American celebration of life.
The beautiful blend of cultures is a quality that makes our great Quad Cities a wonderful place to live. The music, art, and heritage is high quality in our community, as we celebrate, honor, and delve into cultural appreciation. Local events are no exception, and the Figge Art Museum hosts a free Dia de los Muertos fiesta on Sunday, October 28 from 12-5 p.m.
