How would you like to be remembered? Candles have been used to honor and illuminate our celebrations for more than 5,000 years. Come decorate a candle with us so that it may honor and illuminate those you cherish in this world and the next.

The Latino Cultural Arts Center dedicates the Fall to Dia de los Muertos and mental wellness. The theme for Ofrendas 2022 focuses on resilience through storytelling. Personal narratives are a powerful tool in which we can create and communicate who we are as an individual, a family unit, and as a community.

Stories create spaces that tell us how we came to be, where we are heading, and how we hope to grow. The workshops are lead by a team of local artists and educators: Adriana Palacios, Carolyna Espinoza, Cindy Loya, Cipriano Ortega, Jackeline Ruiz and Nancy Viera.
