This year we are inviting community members to create their own ofrendas dedicated to a deceased loved one in the Crossroads Gallery at the NDCAC and at the IUSB Civil Rights Heritage Center. These will be the focus of the Día de los Muertos event being held on Thursday, November 2nd. Ofrendas are to be installed in the gallery during September 2017 for display through the month of October and removed immediately at the end of the November 2nd celebration. Proposal applications can be found here. They can also be picked up at the Notre Dame Center for Arts & Culture at 1045 W. Washington Street. Submissions are due by Tuesday, September 19 at 4:30 PM.
Special thanks for sponsoring this exhibition to the Indiana University South Bend Civil Rights Heritage Center, and the following departments at the University of Notre Dame; the Center for Arts and Culture, Kellogg Institute for International Studies, Institute for Latino Studies, Office of Community Relations, and the Snite Museum of Art.
Applying is free, as is participating in the event. Qualifying altars will be eligible to receive up to $50 reimbursement for supplies with receipts. Please submit your application soon.
