Call for Entries! Día de los Muertos Community Ofrenda Exhibit 2019
Each year the National Hispanic Cultural Center works with schools and community organizations to host an exhibit of ofrendas (altars) in celebration of Día de los Muertos

Use this form to register your group or school, as participants in the NHCC Ofrenda (altar) exhibit.

Ofrendas will be placed in the Domenici Education Building and the Roy E. Disney Performing Arts Center and the performing arts building.

Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, October 9th, 2019 (you will be notified by email if your submission is approved)

Installation dates are Tuesday, October 15 - Saturday, October 19, 2019

The exhibit runs October 21 - November 8, 2019 (Take down Saturday November 9 - 15th)

Due to limited availability, the NHCC cannot accommodate all requests for tables. Please plan to provide your own tables, boxes or structure for your altar, and additional desired supplies. The NHCC reserves the right to review all submissions to ensure their alignment with the NHCC mission.

If you are unable to create an ofrenda, the NHCC has a community ofrenda that you are welcome to contribute items in remembrance of your loved ones. Keep in mind we are not responsible for any items that are lost or stolen. Please do not bring irreplaceable photographs or items. We encourage photo copies.

Questions? Please call or email Elena @ 505-383-4734
This year we are working with 516 arts and are asking for a select number of submissions to be dedicated to the "Species in Peril" along the Rio Grande.
I can provide you with a list of plants and animals that are extinct or facing extinction along the Rio Grande. For information on the exhibit at 516 Arts and programming
