Altar Makers Gear Up for Day of the Dead

An altar by artist Luis Vasquez-Gomez, in collaboration with the Red Poppy Art House. Pinwheels on the perimeter were created by children in the Family Art Project. The wind is a way to communicate with the dead, and the pinwheels feature the children's handwritten notes and drawings.

Friday afternoon at Garfield Park, altar makers gathered to start work on their creations.

Be sure to stop by tonight between 6 and 11 p.m. to see the finished products.
