Día de muertos theatre celebrated through the fine lens of photographer Russell J. Young who has captured six years of muertos’ shows created by Milagro, the Pacific Northwest's premier Latino arts and culture organization. Every year Milagro produces a brand new Día de los muertos show. Since 2008, Young has captured the essence of these productions and the spirit of the holiday with his keen eye for drama, color and heart. Edited by Milagro Artistic Director Olga Sanchez, the book is "an emotional read and a feast for the eyes.".
Milagro's mission is to provide extraordinary Latino theatre, culture and arts education experiences for the enrichment of all communities. Its vision: a community-centered Latino arts epicenter inspiring a new generation of art, artists and patrons from around the world. For nearly 30 years it has been the center of Latino theatre, arts and culture for the Pacific Northwest, creating authentic and accessible arts experiences for and about the diverse Latino community. Recognizing that the Latino experience is diverse and evolving, Milagro seeks to present the freshest currents in Latino arts and culture and actively seeks to work with artists who bring to the work an enthusiasm for risk, shared learning and collaborative creation. Among Milagro’s most significant contributions to the field is the creation of work that transcends its culture to attain universal relevance.
