Grand Park pays tribute to the cultural tradition of Día de los Muertos—Day of the Dead—with a 12-day public art installation taking place from October 22 through November 2, 2021. The ninth annual Grand Park's Downtown Día de los Muertos honors people, places and ideas that merit reverence and commemoration through free, family-friendly programming. The large, artistic altars will be spaced safely to enhance public engagement and maximize social distancing among guests. A major highlight will be the return of the annual Noche de Ofrenda (“Night of the Offerings”) in-person ceremony on Saturday, October 23, 2021, at 7:00 p.m., featuring a performance by Danza Divina de Los Angeles with special guest and legacy danzante General Lazaro Arvizu, as well as free LACMA led calavera (“skull”) art workshops inspired by Aztec art, open to all ages.
Guests can experience, hear and learn about the traditions of Día de los Muertos and stroll through the large-scale altar and art installations located throughout Grand Park, curated by Self Help Graphics, including the annual community altar created by Maestra Ofelia Esparza and her family.
