The Consulate General of Mexico, the Cultural Arts Committee of Nogales, Arizona, and 0S3 Movement, are delighted to present the Altares de Muertos exhibition which has been put together by members of the community to celebrate Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).
Día de los 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 Friday, October 28th at 6:00 p.m. and taste atole and delicious “Pan de Muerto”, a traditional Mexican pastry prepared during this particular celebration.
