Dia de Muertos Ofrenda Exhibit
Solano’s Dia de Muertos celebrations are well underway here at Solano!
Solano College will have open their ofrendas to the public starting October 16 and in advance of that would like to start collecting names and photographs of loved ones that our community would like included. Please Join us in celebrating and remembering those who have passed.
The Day of the Dead is a holiday traditionally celebrated on November 1 and 2 across Latino communities. Mexico and other Hispanic communities celebrate these days with a variety of traditions. A very common tradition is an Ofrenda or Offering. Ofrendas are not for worshiping the deceased but rather for remembrance and celebration of a life lived. Each Ofrenda is unique because the objects on it typically represent the things those who’re remembered on it used to enjoy.
We’re asking the SCC Community for help in identifying SCC students, faculty, and staff as well as Solano friends, family and loved ones that have passed away. It is our goal to include them in the Ofrenda as a tribute to their dedication to the college and the Solano community. Please fill out this Microsoft form Solano Community College Ofrenda to include someone in the Ofrenda.
We also have a lot of programming across the solano campuses in Vallejo, Vacaville and Fairfield for students, staff, faculty, and their families to partake in. Remember we are a community made up of our students, staff, faculty, AND their supporters!
Open to the public: Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm
This ongoing exhibit will be displayed at the following locations:
Herger Gallery Building 1300, Fairfield campus
