Dia de los Muertos Community Celebration
Past Event

Join us for the celebration of the opening of BIMA’s Dia de los Muertos altar/ofrenda. Come together to remember and celebrate the lives of our loved ones that have left us in this annual community event.

The festival centerpiece is a traditional ofrenda, a colorful, multi-paneled shrine created by artist Araceli Cruz to which visitors can add their own mementos honoring those who’ve passed into time. The altar is accessible to the public each day during museum hours from October 26-November 3.
