In collaboration with the Espacio Cultural Latinx (ECL), the Hispanic Outreach Program (HOP) has set up an altar and display for Día de los Muertos in Hutchins Library. Día de los Muertos is a celebration from October 31st- November 2nd where families gather to honor and remember deceased loved ones.

The display is located in the library's main floor by the entrance, and it is open during regular library hours to the campus community. The community is invited to view the display and write a message to their deceased loved ones. The display runs through November 5, 2021.


In addition, HOP has set up a second altar at Espacio Cultural Latino (ECL) in the lower level of the Alumni Building. They are also hosting a celebration on November 1 and November 2 at the ECL at 7pm on both nights.
