As we walk through the hall of altars we see many different interpretations on what our community is honoring. I noticed the waves of people stopping specifically and taking time to look at this altar. As I stepped closer it looked like an exact replica of what we think an ofrenda/altar to look like. The bright colors & the photos of those being remembered with the pan de muerto all ties the traditions together & is opening space to bring the community together. Everyone was stopping & taking photos while parents were stepping down to their kids to help explain why an altar had specific colors & offerings. Those dressed in dia de los muertos fashion walked with their chins up & caught the attention if those admiring the work & community.
