“El arte la calavera”
CHOF believes bones are a beautiful part of our lives. Therefore, we have created this page to highlight community organizations, which celebrate “la calavera” (literally, "the skull") past and present, and exhibit the art of good bone health.
Please support these organizations and their mission in bringing this positive message to the community. Because together, we can stop an epidemic.™

" The most unique characteristic of the Mexican celebration of the Día de los muertos (Day of the Dead) is the presence of joy - a feeling rarely associated with death. This is because during this celebration, death is symbolically abolished."
- Gregorio Luke
Using digital illustrations as well as rare film footage, Mr. Luke transports his audiences like no other speaker. In this singular presentation, he knocks on death's door and opens it up to Mexican art & culture, its indiginous people's traditions and brings to life the Day of the Dead tradition!
