Day of the Dead in Mexico is a family event, that is celebrated with altars and visits to the tombs of love ones. It is comprised of sugar skulls, portraits of the loved ones, momentos, candys and foods as ofrendas (offerings). The colors are usually festive, and death is made fun of. Viveros has described this day not only as a time to remember your loved ones but also as a celebration of life.
The altar will be up until the end of the exhibition on November 10th.
