Art exhibit and Day of the Dead installations will be hosted at The Zone:

Oferenda: Traditional unique ofrenda.

The Mictlan: The mythological journey of Quetzalcoatl to rescue the bones of his father in the underworld.

The Alebrije: This is a fantastic creature originally not part of the Day of the Dead. However, Alebrijes are know as cultural icons of Mexican culture these days, so of course we had to include one in the festivities!

The Afterlife Town: An abstract sculptural representation of what the afterlife will be like, based on the tradition. Made from a recycled wood from a 1800 dismantled organ, which was a donation from the Oregon Buddhist Temple.

Posada: Mural created in honor of Jose Guadalupe Posada.

Arbery’s ofrenda: Who is allowed to dream? A mixed media sculpture.

Art Exhibit: Printmaking, Painting, photography and sculpture.

Giant skeletons and more.
