Ofrendas Para los Muertos – from Oakland, with love

20 Nov

Last night, before heading to the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee meeting and then the Walk Oakland Bike Oakland meeting, I stopped by the opening night of Ofrendas Para Los Muertos, an exhibit in the atrium of the State Building. I only had 10 minutes to enjoy, since my bus was extremely late, but it was incredible and I intend to return soon to take it all in.

Here’s a taste of what the exhibit has to offer:

If you’re downtown any weekday in the next month in a half, I highly recommend checking it out. Here are the details:

    Wonderful…must check out this exhibit too. It’s great to be able to focus on curated ofrendas, without the craziness of the Dia event.
