Monarchs and Marigolds

Centro Cultural Aztlan presents Monarchs and Marigolds with Don Nuñez.

Since 1977, Centro Cultural Aztlan has opened its doors to tourists and residents to take part in the biggest and oldest Dia de los Muertos Celebration paying tribute to this centuries-old tradition. This year, as we get ready to convert our gallery into a giant installation that is filled with altares, ofrendas, cempazuchitl (marygolds), photos of loved ones, candles and more, we wanted to share two easy projects you can use for your own Dia de los Muertos altar or to decorate your home or office.

Join us in a virtual presentation Friday, September 17, 2021 at 7pm, as Artist Don Nuñez makes it easy for us to learn the basics in creating paper or vinyl marigolds and paper-maché Butterflies; Two very significant and meaningful components of the Dia de los Muertos celebration.

Video Premiere: Friday, September 17, 2021 at 7PM

Video presentation will be on our website, Facebook and YouTube indefinitely.
