Hoping to learn more about your art, antiques, and collectibles? Appraisers from DuMouchelle Art Galleries Co., Detroit, will be on hand to evaluate collectibles, jewelry, and antiques, combining decades of professional experience in many areas.

Written appraisals cannot be provided at this event, but Appraisal Fair is an inexpensive opportunity that can help you know if it would be worthwhile to pay to get a written appraisal on an item for sales or insurance reasons.

Día de los Muertos: Day of the Dead Ofrendas at Visit Muskegon @ Visit Muskegon
Oct 30 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Día de los Muertos: Day of the Dead Ofrendas at Visit Muskegon @ Visit Muskegon

WHAT IS AN “OFRENDA”?

In Mexico and other Latin American countries, Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) is the time of year to celebrate the lives of close relatives, friends or community members who have passed away. The holiday is a festive celebration welcoming departed spirits back into peoples’ lives for another year.

Ofrendas are elaborate altar displays; using objects meaningful to the departed such as favorite foods, drinks, mementos and photographs. They may also include pan de muerto (bread of the dead), sugar skulls, candles, papel picado (paper cutouts) and other decorations. Flowers are often used, the most popular being cempazuchitl (marigolds). Believers say Marigolds guide the spirit to their altar via their vibrant colors and distinct scent.
