The Altar Project – Monarch Altar Kit Distribution
The Festival will distribute 50 free altar kits to members of the San Antonio community who have suffered the loss of someone one due to COVID-19 or social injustice so they can build a small altar or ofrenda in the safety of their home.
The kit will provide components of an ofrenda, assembled and created by local artists and overseen by San Antonio artist José Sotelo: candles, pan muerto, fabric dyed with marigold extracts by local artist Amada Miller, a rendition of a monarch butterfly, sugar skulls, marigold flowers, and a reusable art box. Altar construction directions included.
Altar kit distribution will be first come first serve.
If you have lost someone one and would like a free kit, please fill out this form.
