2019 Dia de Los Muertos: Candle Decorating | Mexican Museum
Submitted by the Event Organizer
In collaboration with The Ruby and The Marigold Project, The Mexican Museum is sponsoring a series of Dia de los Muertos Altar Building workshops: six weeks of workshops.
Learn about one element of the altar each week. The Mexican Museum team will be leading us through this series to create an altar to place at The Festival Of Altars.
The Day of the Dead festivities in San Francisco brings all communities together to celebrate the most meaningful events: life, death, in community in one spirit. The Dia de Los Muertos Festival of Altars will have five altars — each is designed and built collaboratively by artists and community in any and all disciplines. Each altar will represent an element, a universal symbol, and a stage of life.
The Mexican Museum, The Ruby, and guests, will be creating the the south altar that summons the element of fire, it is devoted to our ancestral youth, and its red-hot hues and triangle symbolize strength, art, poetry, passion and balance.
Altar Building Series Workshops:
This event is free, with no materials fee. Everyone will be able to collect their belongings the first week of November from The Ruby.
*Free with RSVP on Eventbrite.
