Latino Arts Virtual Community Ofrenda: Aun Presente
This year, Latino Arts is celebrating Dia de Los Muertos in new and innovative ways. If your class is unable to visit the Dia de Los Muertos exhibit and Latino Arts this year, we encourage students to participate virtually by creating their own Ofrenda!
An integral part of the Dia de los Muertos celebration is the tradition of creating an Ofrenda. In order to celebrate, the families make altars and place Ofrendas (offerings) of food such as pan de muertos baked in shapes of skulls and figures, candles, incense, yellow marigolds known as Cempazuchitl and most importantly, a photo of the departed soul is placed on the altar.
As a way to engage a broader community to celebrate and understand this tradition, we are launching our Dia de los Muertos Virtual Community Ofrenda: Aun Presente. Through this effort we are encouraging students to create their own Ofrendas as simple or as complex as they wish.
*Students are encouraged to take a photo and write a brief summary of their Ofrenda and email it to us at email@example.com. This is a great way to educate your class about the traditions of the Ofrenda, while encouraging creativity and individual cultural exploration. All photos should be submitted by October 30.
Available: Now - October 30

Virtual Live Ofrendas Gallery Tour!
Visit our popular Dia de Los Muertos Gallery Exhibit virtually with our Managing Artistic Director, Jacobo Lovo. The tour will showcase this year's unique art exhibit and involve detailed explanations of the tradition as well as the specific installations for this year's celebration.
Tours will run approximately 30 minutes, but can be customized based on specific needs. Latino Arts will also send an electronic copy of our Dia de los Muertos Education Packet to be shared with students in advance for additional educational components. To make the gallery tour experience more interactive, we encourage you to pair this experience with the opportunity for students to create their own ofrenda with Aun Presente Community Ofrenda project. Here, students can create their very own Ofrenda that will be added to our Latino Arts Virtual Ofrenda Exhibit.
