Centro Cultural Aztlan is pleased to continue the tradition in presenting our 46th annual Día de los Muertos exhibition, “Altares y Ofrendas”.
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.
Join us for an in-gallery tour of cultural traditions, history, and an artistic celebration including: Altars by local artists, our annual “Callejon de los Muertos” Artisan market on the breezeway featuring some of the most noted artists an makers in San Antonio.

COVID-19 has greatly impacted the work we do here at Centro Cultural Aztlan, and we have had to adapt quickly! The Cultural Expressions series will allow us to continue engaging the artistas de Aztlan who were scheduled to participate in exhibitions that were canceled due to Covid-19. We are taking steps to continue to bring valuable programming to the community via digital platforms through Facebook, YouTube and our website.
Since the closure of our gallery, many artists do not have the means—or place—to exhibit and sell their works. The Cultural Expressions series will help highlight their stories and their art, while making our Gallery available to our comunidad virtually.
