Living Arts of Tulsa has the Day of the Dead Arts Festival every year on November 1 and 2. I had something else going on that day so I missed it that day but the had the ofrenda’s display for a few days afterward so I got a chance to see them but of course missed out on the other festivities.
What I mainly like are the Ofrendas or Altars in memory of departed ones. They might have favorite foods and drinks of the departed.
They also have murals. Most of them were outside so it was hard to get a good photo. This one was inside.
Due to the pandemic, they did not have near as many ofrendas as past years.
Typically there are lots of photographs and bright decorations.
Skulls, marigolds, and religious symbols.

I love the ofrendas and the idea that a couple days of a year you honor your dearly departed.
So if somebody wanted to make an ofrenda for me when I am gone. What would I like on it. My Cowboys hat and a beer would be good. One or more of my cameras, some of my photos. My laptop!! and Iphone. A Chinatown poster. I don’t know. What would you like or do you find the whole idea strange?
