In partnership with the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, students from El Colegio, an urban-based magnet school in Minneapolis, create ofrendas, the Spanish word for offerings related to Day of the Dead ceremonies. Students use wooden crates to symbolize the immigrant population that came to Minnesota to work in the fields. Each ofrenda reflects the students own experience.

This project Web site and blog follows the students progress in creating their ofrendas. Here we present the videos they have made, in which they relate their perspectives and insights as they honor their ancestors. Their final ofrendas and videos will be on view in an exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts between October 20 and November 15, 2009.
