Accessing Digital Altar Exhibit

October 27 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

One of the central aspects of the yearly Día de los Muertos celebration at the Museum of South Texas History is the Community Altar Exhibit. However, due to Covid-19, the museum invites the community to participate in the new Digital Altar Exhibit. To learn more about this digital platform, the museum will publish “Accessing Digital Altar Exhibit,” an instructional video on the museum’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/mosthistory/live.

In previous years, the museum’s Courtyard Gallery presentation room transformed into a place where families and friends built altars to honor loved ones passed, celebrated their lives and shared memories. With the current social distancing reality, museum staff worked diligently to create the Digital Altar Exhibit, in which community members can remember a loved one using digital media. 

Thvideo will provide stepbystep instructions on how to submit an honoree through the Digital Altar Exhibit submission form and where the information will be published. The video will also be available on the museum’s website after its publication. 

If you have any questions, please contact Programs and Events Officer René Ballesteros at rballesteros@mosthistory.org.
