Community artists are invited to create altares, helping to facilitate a dialogue that examines the history and traditions of this cultural celebration. This event illustrates the artistic, cultural, and religious facets of this popular pre-Columbian Mexican tradition where death is seen as a natural part of life and this reality is approached with humor a celebration of life. Photographs of loved ones passed grace altars as well as offerings of food, marigolds, incense, candles, and other traditional offerings.[/ms_heading] [ms_heading style="" color="" border_color="" text_align="left" font_weight="400" font_size="34" margin_top="0" margin_bottom="10" border_width="5" responsive_text="yes" class="" id=""] Saturday, November 2nd 2019 [/ms_heading] [/ms_column] [ms_column style="2/5" align="left" class="" id=""] [ms_flip_box direction="horizontal" front_paddings="1" front_background="#666666" front_color="#ffffff" back_paddings="1" back_background="#666666" back_color="#ffffff" class="" id=""]|||[/ms_flip_box] [ms_heading style="" color="" border_color="" text_align="left" font_weight="600" font_size="14" margin_top="10" margin_bottom="10" border_width="5" responsive_text="yes" class="" id=""] Altares y Ofrendas Exhibition runs through November 15, Monday-Friday, 9-5 p.m.
