Día de los Muertos Ofrenda Comunitaria
Visit the first floor of the McLean County Museum of History from Saturday, October 23 through Saturday, November 6 to view a community ofrenda in celebration of Día de los Muertos.

Ofrenda (Spanish for offering) is a tiered altar created to honor deceased loved ones and celebrate life. Ofrendas include items significant to those loved ones and other items representing the four elements: Wind, Water, Fire, and Earth. The creation of ofrendas dates to Aztec and Mesoamerican practices. This community ofrenda is inspired by the Mexican Día de los Muertos tradition and is made possible through partnership with Western Avenue Community Center.
