Altares de Muertos Exhibition
October 29, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
The Consulate General of Mexico in Nogales, Arizona and the Cultural Arts Committee are delighted to present the Altares de Muertos exhibition which has been put together by members of the community to celebrate Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead).
Día de Muertos is a millenary Mexican celebration in which all loved ones who have passed away are remembered in family and friends gatherings, many times in cemeteries or around Altares de Muertos. Practices related to this celebration include building altars, called “ofrendas”, honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves bearing these items as gifts.
Come join us at the Consulate General on Thursday, October 29th at 6:00 p.m. and taste atole and delicious “pan de muerto”, a traditional Mexican pastry prepared during this particular celebration.
