Ofrendas Para los Muertos-from Oakland, with love
Curated by Rachel-Anne Palacios
Showcasing mixed media homages in honor of our dearly departed.

Dia de los muertos is a momentous holiday in the Mexican culture that has taken on new adaptations and transformations of its traditions over the years. We invite you to behold our offerings created in reverence of our ancestors.
