Aun Presente: Community Ofrenda Art Installation

Download Day of the Dead Facts sheet HERE!
This year, Latino Arts is celebrating Dia de Los Muertos in new and innovative ways. 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 individuals to create their own Ofrendas, as simple or as complex as they wish.
*Individuals are encouraged to take a photo and write a brief summary of their Ofrenda and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or upload to social media and tag us! (@latinoartsinc) Submissions will be featured in our Aun Presente Community Ofrenda Installation in the Latino Arts Gallery and will be featured on Social Media. Submissions should be sent no later than Oct. 30.
