Hispanic Heritage Month Presents: 'The Day of the Dead: Altres y Ofrendas' Art Exhibit

Halloween goes cross-cultural this year! Art professor Joan Cawley-Crane and several Central Latino students celebrate the Day of the Dead with collaborative artwork as a part of "Altares y Ofrendas," meaning "alters and offerings." Check out their work throughout campus and Ellensburg Wednesday, Oct. 31 through Thursday, Nov. 1.

 

The Day of the Dead is a Hispanic holiday to celebrate and remember the lives of loved ones who have died. Families celebrate by gathering to create ofrendas, memorials for the dead. The imagery of Día de los Muertos is striking and recognizable, often consisting of decorated skulls and marigolds. The student artists will no doubt bring these elements to life on campus, making this year's Halloween not just about the candy.
