Walk-in Craft : Mini Ofrendas
Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday that celebrates and honors those who have passed. An essential ritual includes making altars or ofrendas (meaning offerings) that include objects placed on display that pay homage to loved ones. Construct and decorate a small paper version in honor of Iowa State’s Latino/a Studies Program 25th anniversary symposium. Open to all ages if accompanied by an adult. Drop in but give yourself an hour. Free.
