Ofrenda Display: Celebrating Hispanic Heritage
The Mayborn Museum is excited to partner with the CenTex Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to host an ofrenda in conjunction with the Hispanic Heritage celebrations throughout Waco. After accepting proposals from local artists and community members, Baylor graduate and local businessman, Eric Linares, was chosen to design the museum’s display. The community is invited to make offerings to honor the life and memory of lost loved ones as part of a celebration of the traditions of Día de los Muertos. For the safety of our building, specimens, and artifacts, we request that no food, live plants, or open flame candles are brought as offerings.
