The ofrendas from Austin, Humboldt and El Colegio have arrived at the MIA, and we couldn’t be more excited! After checking in the beautifully transformed crates we sent them off with our Visual Resources team. They are being photographed right now. The Art Crew will begin installing these beautiful works of art shortly in Gallery 110 in the Community Commons. We are thrilled to have the ofrendas at the museum, and we will treat them as we would any other valuable piece of artwork while they reside with us here at the museum.
The ofrendas will be installed soon and the exhibition will open on Tuesday, October 22nd. Shortly after, we will celebrate the beautiful show with the student artists and teachers. We cannot wait to see their response to the show they created with reverence to their deceased family, friends, heroes and idols.
