Entrance to the Exhibit:
Ofrenda, or Offering, is part of the traditional Mexican celebration of Día de los Muertos. A special spot in the home is customarily selected to put photographs, flowers, decorations, lit candles and favorite food and drink of those who have passed away. This act of preparing an altar of offerings to the dead helps transform grief into acceptance. View original Ofrenda installations by local Arizona artists that have been created specifically for this exhibition.
