Sofía Quintero Art and Cultural Center (SQACC) celebrated its 17th anniversary in the community and Día de los Muertos with an altar exhibit and fundraiser on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013.


Día de los Muertos is celebrated throughout Mexico and Latino communities in honor of those who have passed away.



SQACC’s 17th anniversary celebration included an exhibit of the Día de los Muertos altars created by community families, Spanish Clubs from local High Schools, and artists.  A special altar was created to honor and remember the 10-year passing of beloved Judge Joseph A. Flores.


The evening fundraiser was from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. at the Sofia Quintero Arts & Cultural Center on Broadway Avenue. A traditional Mexican dinner was served featuring authentic Mexican food prepared by Quintero’s resident chef and served by Waite High School students, supervised by Josh Flores.  Guests were entertained by Los Mariachis Locos


Altars activities were free and open to the public starting with a blessing ceremony at 9:00 a.m. at the Quintero Center followed by a procession lead by Father Juan Molina to SS Peter & Paul Parish,  728 S. St. Clair St, for mass and a pan dulce y chocolate reception.
