It is a great honor to have been invited to be the Lead Artist for Dia de los Muertos: La Ofrenda at the wonderful Southwest School of Art in San Antonio, Texas.
I am very happy to have the opportunity to share this wonderful tradition from my country, Mexico, with all the community in San Antonio.
Southwest School of Art has been doing the altars for years and this time I will lead this wonderful event.
The invitation came at the best moment for me after having a very difficult summer in 2011 when I lost three very important family members.
This will give me the incredible opportunity to make a day of the dead altar to honor them and all my other family members that are not with us any more in body, but they will always be with us in spirit.
I will make my best to transmit why the altars are so important in our culture and why we see dead in a totally different way.
Hope you will come to see it if you live in San Antonio and the surrounding areas, I will love to see you there.
