Calls for Participation: Community Altar Project

The Community Altar Project is inspired by the altar making traditions in Mexico for Day of the Dead but community and personal altars of remembrance are in many traditions, all over the world. As part of a public tribute, you are invited to create an altar box to be part of an exhibition at the Overture Center or send in photos and videos honoring someone who has passed. The virtual altars will be presented in a large-scale outdoor projection at the Garver Feed Mill.
