Seed Souls: Nourishing Life, Honoring Death
October 30 – November 2, 2009

The National Hispanic Cultural Center present a large-scale, outdoor community ofrenda during the Día de los Muertos Celebration on the outdoors stairs of the Center’s Visual Arts building. The theme for this year's ofrenda is Seed Souls: Nourishing Life, Honoring Death. Students, community members and artists work together with lead-artist, Catalina Delgado Trunk to transform the monumental stairs into an altar honoring the “seed souls” of corn, beans, chile and squash united at the intersection of earth and water. The result is a sacred outdoor space for the community to place remembrances and offerings to loved ones who have died in observance of Día de los Muertos.

Dedication and opening for offerings: Friday, October 30, 5:30-7:30pm
Ofrenda on view through sundown on November 2
