Los Angeles is comprised of different communities with rich, impactful histories and cultural contributions. What you’ll see as you walk through Grand Park are exquisite threads that create tapestries that focus on legacies, families, and the beauty of our diverse Latino community.
Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead at Grand Park, offers Los Angelenos and city visitors the opportunity to interact with an intimate and important component of the celebration – the ofrendas/altars. Each installation gives the viewer a glimpse of the person(s) being remembered, who they were in life, what was important to them, what brought them passion, what their impact was on those still living and especially how they were loved. As you visit with each ofrenda, perhaps you can imagine sharing a cup of coffee or a sip of tea or getting a good book, movie or play recommendation from those who are being remembered.
Each altar is dedicated to people like you or me or someone we know, who lived, loved, and became part of our community. Sometimes they were here for a long time, sometimes for a short time – but always an impactful, memorable time.
As you interact with and learn from each ofrenda, remember what the Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead celebration is in three simple tenets:
- To remember, honor and memorialize those who we’ve lost.
- To come to terms with our own mortality.
- To celebrate life – ALL LIFE – every day. "
