Grand Park together with Self Help Graphics & Art’s Noche de Ofrenda invites all of Los Angeles to remember our loved ones both past and present. Self Help Graphics’ Noche de Ofrenda at Grand Park is a special partnership that joins two of Los Angeles’ great cultural spaces, and marks the first public commemoration of Self Help Graphics’ 40th Anniversary with 40 altars by local artists, community based organizations and social justice movements. Families and individuals from all over Los Angeles County are invited to join Grand Park and Self Help Graphics for this traditional and meditative evening, celebrating the diversity of Los Angeles and sharing the art of altar making and offerings during Day of the Dead season.
NOCHE DE OFRENDA kicks off the celebration with 40 altars on display all week, culminating on NOV 2 with DOWNTOWN DIA DE LOS MUERTOS. A community altar, located on the Performance Lawn (between Grand and Hill), invites all to participate OCT 26-NOV 2.
