Cleveland to celebrate “Dia de Muertos,” October 26-28
Cleveland: On Friday, October 26, 2007, from 6 to 10pm, Cleveland’s St. Clair Superior neighborhood will host the state of Ohio’s only “Día de Muertos” – the Day of the Dead celebration. This free event will take place at Josaphat Arts Hall (1433 East 33rd Street).
Artistas Latinos Unidos (ALU) with the help of local organizations and sponsors, will host the following activities:
The festivities will center around “ofrendas, offerings” for the Day of the Dead created by 13 local artists who have come together to share their artistic visions of an ofrenda. Each ofrenda reflects the respective artist’s personal beliefs and interpretation of a traditional offering in honor of his/her departed loved ones.
In Latin America, it is traditional to observe the “Día de Muerto.” In the Mexican culture, it is a colorful, festive occasion where the spirits of deceased loved ones are welcomed back for a day of ritual and amusement, we are celebrating our third year of this fantastic event.
The ofrendas will be on display inside Josaphat Arts Hall from October 26 through October 28. The times for Saturday, October 27 and Sunday October 28 are from 12 to 4pm and will also include children’s workshops and community offerings.
