The MOA’s annual exhibit celebrates the unique Mexican observance of the Day of the Dead.  The exhibit’s centerpiece is a traditional ofrenda, an altar with food and beverage offerings, flowers, sugar skulls, and photos of deceased family members.  This year, the colorful exhibit compares the celebration’s observance in rural areas versus urban ones.  It also includes information on the celebration’s history and its unique skeleton-themed folk art.  Exhibit text is in English and Spanish.  Admission is free.
