The end of October and beginning of November is a crowded time on the holiday calendar, so it’s time to start making preparations now.
Along with deciding on costumes and carving pumpkins, it’s worth taking a minute to remember that the holidays surrounding Halloween are dedicated to remember those who have gone before us.
The Walters Art Museum is offering a particularly poignant and public way to remember loved ones who passed with a Dia de los Muertos altar. Traditionally celebrated in Mexico from October 31-Nov. 2, the holiday is focused on gatherings to pay respects. At the Walters, artist Edgar Reyes created an altar to provide a place for people to bring items in remembrance. You can also send a dedication via social media. On Instagram, folks can post their offering using #InHonorOf, and the Walters will place the photo on the altar.
The altar will be open from Oct. 19-Oct. 30
