30th Annual Day of the Dead Exhibition: Ofrendas para las ánimas

  • Dates: October 1 to November 19, 2016
  • 2nd Floor Galleries
  • $2 admission

Ofrendas para las ánimas (Offerings for the souls) features artistic ofrendas by: Amelia Berumen, Anita De Lucio, Aurelio Melchor Pimentel, Bryan Perez, John Martinez & family, Julia Rivera, Lillian Botello, Manos Creativas, Marco Razo, Nancy Ledesma, Orlando de la Garza, Regina Meredith Fitiao, Susana Gomez, and Susan Mathews.

In our Inti-Raymi gallery, we feature photographs from a series titled, “Muerte, Culto, y Devoción”, taken by David Trujillo. David’s photographs captured significant aspects of the indigenous ritual of Day of the Dead in Michoacán, Veracruz, and Tabasco. These photographs display diverse scenarios that manifest a Mesoamerican ceremony towards their ancestors.

Come experience this intimate remembrance and celebration of our loved ones who have passed away.
