[ARCHIVED] Día de Los Muertos Altar on Display - Morris Center Enlightens Community on Mexican Holiday

Altar at Morris Center

Day of the Dead Altar at the Morris Center for Lowcountry Heritage

Ridgeland, S.C., Oct. 26, 2021—The Morris Center for Lowcountry Heritage is pleased to announce that it will display a Día de Los Muertos altar until to Nov. 2, 2021. The Day of the Dead altar relates to the center’s current exhibit, VeMe, which features the works of four Latinx artists of the Lowcountry and runs through Jan. 22, 2021. 

Community members are invited to bring photographs of deceased loved ones to place on the altar designed and installed by Deyanira Cerón from Hardeeville and with Pinatas Dey Event Planning.  

The altar is an opportunity for visitors to learn more about the two-day Mexican holiday celebrated throughout the U.S. and Latin America Nov. 1 and 2. Día de Los Muertos is a time for families to honor their ancestors and dead loved ones by bringing candles, flowers, sugar skulls and other offerings and gathering to pray. 

The altar is sponsored by Palmetto Luna Arts and funded in part by a Folklore & Traditional Arts grant from the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts. 

The Morris Center is open to the public Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. For more information, please visit www.morrisheritagecenter.org.
