Interpretación en vivo en inglés y español


Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican tradition that seeks to commemorate and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have passed away. The creation of an altar is a key component of this celebration, which is both bittersweet and joyful. In this program, Los Angeles-based artist, educator and altarista Ofelia Esparza shares her philosophy and approach to making altars and to keeping Día de los Muertos alive in the U.S. She is joined by her daughter, graphic artist and collaborator Rosanna Esparza Ahrens. Together they discuss their creative process to make public altars—from remembering loved ones, to gathering materials and working in community to create a final piece that invites reflection and healing.
