Join us for a two-day community gathering for Día de Muertos, a celebration of life that demonstrates remembrance, love, and respect for those who have gone before us.
The tradition originated in Mexico but is celebrated throughout Latin America and parts of the United States.
Participate in the construction of a community ofrenda in the Smith Family Gallery landing throughout both days of Día de Muertos. Ofrendas are altars created to honor a deceased person and are traditionally filled with offerings of food, flowers and candles. All are welcome to bring something to leave at the ofrenda that celebrates someone special in your life who has passed. (PleaseView more
