El Dia de los Muertos Community Home Altar

El Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) altars are a household tradition in Mexico and many other parts of the world providing a way for loved ones to connect with the departed.

State of Wonder‘s April Baer spent a morning in Corvallis discussing the community version of these altars, on display at The Arts Center’s Corrine Woodman Gallery. She spoke with the curator, Hester Couke, about creating the community altar and two women who stopped by to view the exhibit about the cultural practice in their families. Check out the slideshow for an inside look.
