Día de los Muertos Altar Creation Workshop
with Patricia Cortez

Saturday, August 20th, 1pm to 3:30pm

Cost: Free, but registration is required to attend
Ages: 13 and Up

Day of the Dead is a celebration practiced in Indigenous communities for thousands of years before the occupation of Mexico, Central and South America. In recent years this tradition has expanded to be celebrated in the U. S. and other parts of the world. As the practice expands and takes root in other countries around the world, the precious knowledge of the tradition is getting lost. This workshop will provide you with the historical origin of the tradition and the Indigenous cosmovision embedded in the ritual, while creating the altar.

This workshop will be experiential and some preparation is required to attend. Please register to receive additional information.

Maude Kerns Art Center Presents

The Maude Kerns Art Center celebrates the 28th annual Día de los Muertos Exhibit in 2021 with artwork, community altars, and a special Day of the Dead Gift Shop. The exhibit, which can be viewed in person or online, is on display through Friday, November 5.

The Mexican Day of the Dead celebration acknowledges the link between the communities of the living and the dead. The holiday blends the ancient harvest rituals of the Aztec god of death and the Roman Catholic holidays of All Souls and All Saints days. On November 1 and 2, the dead are thought to return to partake in the activities of the living. Holiday activities include the creation of altars that welcome deceased loved ones.
