"La Celebración del Día de Muertos" is the new exhibit in the Mexico Folk Art Gallery at Epcot's Mexico Pavilion:

... Guests are invited to experience the beautiful artistry of this important cultural celebration with artwork including papel picado, sugar skulls and paper sculptures, as well as pre-hispanic items on loan from various museums showcasing the early history of this celebration.

The gallery also highlights four pieces of artwork and explores the artists’ unique processes and inspiration. One such piece, a sculpture group titled Bridal Couple, was created by a father and son in Mexico City whose family has been hand-making this type of celebratory art for more than 300 years. When it debuts next week, Bridal Couple will be the centerpiece of the gallery with four sculptures ranging from 2.5-10 feet tall.
