Day of the Dead 2022
Multicultural Day, celebrating the 15th annual Day of the Dead celebration
This year, the Languages and Cultures Department hosted their Multicultural Day, celebrating the 15th annual Day of the Dead celebration. The exhibit is the centerpiece of this event, as it is made to remember and honor deceased friends, family and loved ones. The altar had three sections this year, the ofrendas, the altar with images of the departed, and a table of catrinas. Each item in the altar has a significant meaning for the deceased in the hopes that it will guide their soul to the land of the living. The department has hosted this annual event to shed light on the cultural significance of this holiday and to allow others to experience a piece of Mexican culture. It demonstrates the syncretism of the indigenous celebration and catholic influence, for Mexicans and Latin Americans. This celebration was a success thanks to all colleagues, students, and guests who contributed and visited the exhibit!!!
