The 20th Anniversary Altar Show Exhibition features art constructions in the form of intentional displays dedicated to persons, memories, concepts, and causes. Through the years, altaristas have ranged in age from eight to 84 and altar themes and art media vary widely, limited only by the altar-makers imagination. Some constructions embrace the tradition of “Dia de los Muetros,” celebrations created to honor ancestors and deceased loved ones. The Altar Show provides participants and viewers with a safe place to renew and remember, and an opportunity to be part of a sacred space.
