History Colorado Día de Los Muertos exhibit of Offerings and Hope:
Día de los Muertos is when we remember loved ones with flowers, candles, and handmade offerings. We’ve partnered with the Chicano Humanities and Arts Council on a community shrine, or ofrenda, at the History Colorado Center. See it now through November 9 and leave an offering of your own. Ofrendas are also open to all at El Pueblo, Fort Garland, and Trinidad. Rather submit a written tribute? We’ll display it at the site of your choosing.
The Latino Cultural Arts Center, our partner for Hecho en Colorado, has organized Ofrendas: Offerings of Hope through November 1st. In-person events, virtual opportunities, and unique altar-kits (quantities limited!) with handmade contributions by artists from Denver, Mexico, and Peru are all right here.
