Ofrendas Altar Exhibit & Blessing of the Altars

Traditional Dia de los Muertos Altars made by the local community.

Join us for MECA’s Blessing of the Altars Celebration on Friday, October 25, 2019! The Blessing of the Altars will be the opening event to the Ofrendas Altar Exhibit, curated by Luis Gavito.

Each year, MECA invites members of the community to build an altar (Ofrenda) featuring photographs and personal belongings of their loved ones who have passed away. Inspired by Mexican tradition and culture, some of the altars also include the Cempasúchil (Mexican Marigold), whose golden petals and fragrant scent are believed to guide the dead from and on their way to the afterlife.
