Dia de los Muertos Exhibit

There is still time to see the Dia de los Muertos exhibit in the Library lobby -- it will be on display through November 7th. The display provides information about the customs surrounding the holiday, as well as examples of the altars knows as "ofrendas".

Other items on display are calacas & calaveras (skull & skeleton figures) from the United States and Mexico; sugar skulls (calaveras de azucar), and painted masks.

Pictures from top to bottom: Judy Garland Ofrenda by Ashley, Skeleton Orchestra, Ofrenda by Patricia, Dorothy Parker Ofrenda by Heather, and Calacas from Mexico.
