“San Anto on the Rise”

Centro Cultural Aztlan is pleased to present its 42nd annual Día de los Muertos exhibition, Altares y Ofrendas, with even más cultura this year, Día de los Muertos on the Old Spanish Trail.

Centro Aztlan’s authentic, community driven exhibition features unique altares made by local artists to honor family and community members who are no longer with us. 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.
