Community Altars: 2019

Community Altars is an annual exhibit at Austin’s Mexic-Arte Museum on Congress Avenue. Ofrendas (altars) are created to honor deceased members of the Latino/a and Mexican communities, in conjunction with the Catholic Holy Days of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day (November 1 and 2). The colorful ofrendas will remain on display at the museum through November 24.
