Exhibit: Ofrenda

October 25, 2019 - November 6, 2019
Exhibit: Ofrenda

Event Summary

The Garden continues its annual exhibition of Ofrenda, or “offering,” which is part of the traditional Mexican celebration of Día de los Muertos. Ofrendas are created to remember and honor the memory of ancestors and loved ones that have passed.

This year’s theme is: “Alebrijes y La Muerte.” Alebriji are fantastical creatures traditionally made of paper maché or carved wood.

The artists explore not only the visual concept of the Alebrije but also its origin and meaning as it applies to Mexican culture and the ever-evolving celebration of Dia de Los Muertos.
