Artist Juan Gonzales celebrates Dia de los Muertos — the Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead — by dedicating an artistic altar to his mother and grandparents. This year, his altar made of family photos, breast cancer ribbons, old records and food items is on display at The Haggin Museum.
Woodbridge artist Juan Gonzalez has been commissioned by the Haggin Museum in Stockton to build a Day of the Dead altar. Gonzalez dedicates an altar to his mother and grandparents every year at his home. Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday in which people celebrate the life of deceased loved ones by decorating an alter with offerings of foods and gifts enjoyed by the loved ones.
A photo of Gonzalez’ grandparents sits on top of the altars. Other tiers reveal other family heirlooms.
Dried pinto beans lay in a decorative bowl beside yellow and orange marigolds, the flower of Dia De Los Muertos.
