Día de Los Muertos may be something of a selling point for mainstream craft shops and Walmart nowadays, but to people of Mexican heritage, its deeper meaning remains. “It’s a time of honor and respect and love; there are personal mementos, there are personal memories and it’s a time to celebrate people’s ancestors and the light that they had,” says Chrissie Ramirez, who through her gallery and store, Casa Ramirez, has been celebrating the Day of the Dead in Houston for more than two decades. Everyone is invited to The Altar Exhibit for Día de los Muertos.

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday. Continuing 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. October 19 through November 10.
