Latino Arts’ annual Day of the Dead Ofrendas Exhibition
Latino Arts’ annual Day of the Dead Ofrendas Exhibition celebration features a bright and eclectic collection of altars prepared by local, regional, and international artists. Exhibiting presenters share their tributes to lost loved ones as a celebration of their lives and accomplishments, often decorating their altars with their loved ones’ personal effects and favorite items. Día de los Muertos celebrations frequently feature colorful floral arrangements, photographs, and skeleton iconography. The exhibition’s opening reception will take place in the Latino Arts Gallery on Friday, November 1 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The ofrendas will be on display from through November 22.
Exhibitions in the Latino Arts Gallery are open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. for a suggested donation of $1.
