Photos: El Dia de los Muertos at Pirate on Navajo Street

Navajo Street co-op gallery Pirate Contemporary Art invited the neighborhood to its traditional Day of the Dead community observance last Friday night. Gallery-goers were treated to an altar display and original Day of the Dead artworks, a candlelight procession to Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, face painting and piñata parties for kids and adults.

Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
