MECA invites diverse communities from Houston and beyond to join its annual Día de los Muertos Festival by participating in the annual Ofrenda Exhibition.

In the spirit of the popular Latin American holiday, everybody is invited to partake in this joyful celebration of the family and friends who passed away, and rich traditions and customs surrounding the Día de los Muertos and similar practices in other cultures.

The exhibition of ofrendas (altars) by community members, local artists, and activists, is curated by Diana Muñiz (on display from October 9 to November 17). Applications to participate can be found in the link below.
Opening Reception is Friday, October 13th, 2017 from 6-8pm.

The altars exhibited at MECA show the voices of multiple cultures in Houston—not only Mexican and Latin American.
MECA’s 2017 Día de los Muertos Festival is supported in part by the grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts’ Cultural Districts Program. Festival sponsors include: United Way, Goya, Faust Distributing and others.
