No Día de los Muertos Celebration for 2016

snowdrift-winslow-dod2014-3Snowdrift Art Space regrets to inform our supporters that we will not be presenting Winslow’s Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Celebration this year. Even though we will not be hosting a public event, Día de los Muertos altars in the Family Chapel are available for viewing though private tours of Snowdrift. E-mail us here to set up an appointment.

Families celebrate Día de los Muertos throughout Latin America and the Southwestern United States to remember their departed ancestors and loved ones. They pray, sing, dance, and place ofrendas (offerings) at graves and altars for the departed, who are thought to briefly visit the earth at this time each year to make sure that all is well and they have not been forgotten. Ofrendas on altars often include flowers, candles, incense, sugar skulls, and statues of saints as well as pictures, personal items, and favorite dishes of the departed.
