Remembrance and Celebration is a participatory art project that invites our community to come together in the thoughtful, often very touching, process of creating a public altar of remembrance for people who have passed.

The process is inspired by altar making traditions in Mexico for Day of the Dead but community and personal altars of remembrance are created in many traditions, all over the world. The project is designed to help us build bridges between the individual and the community, life and death, sorrow and celebration.

To participate in making your own altar box for the display, contact: metler@wisc.edu (Dave Metler).
Requested altar box must be submitted back to the location by Monday, October 30, to be displayed for the week.
