Día de los Muertos Community Altar

The museum’s community ofrenda, or altar, will be on display for the two weeks leading up to our Día de los Muertos Community Celebration on October 30 from noon to 3 p.m.. Artist Edgar Reyes has created this year’s altar and is inviting all members of the public to bring items to place on the altar in honor of loved ones who have passed*. 

Or, send us a dedication to your loved one digitally. Instagram us a photo using the hashtag #InHonorOf and tagging us @thewaltersartmuseum. Or email your photos to with "#InHonorOf" in the subject line. The photos will be printed and placed on the altar. 

*Due to conservation concerns we are unable to display plants, flowers, leaves, balloons, food, or liquids. We appreciate your support.
