Dia De Los Muertos

Day of the Dead Virtual Celebration

Celebrating Together, Apart

Thanks to a partnership with Alt Ethos Experiential Design Studio, participants visit a website to create artistic designs on their devices and interact with other people’s creations.

“This is quite the experiment, but we know that many people engage celebrations through the arts, and we want to maintain that engagement,” explained Alisa Zimmerman, Thornton Arts & Culture manager. “There’s a lot of very vibrant art that is created as part of this holiday, so we thought this would be a great way to celebrate in a contactless way.”

The city’s Day of the Dead/Dia de los Muertos event has been gaining in popularity over the last four years, Zimmerman said. The organizers offer celebrations including performers and a food and gift market for people to explore. But most importantly, it was an opportunity for members of Thornton’s vibrant Hispanic and Mexican community to get together, which is why it was important the city still find a way to have a good time.

“We’re hoping that this year’s option will attract a large age group and will remind them to come back when we can get together again next year,” she said. “We want people to have an awareness of the culture and engage in a way that is unique for the holiday. And we hope this will be a meaningful distraction from everything going on right now.”

Running from Sunday, Nov. 1 through Tuesday, Nov. 3, this year’s celebration offers a virtual option to mark the holiday.
