LAURIE BETH ZUCKERMAN'S DIA DE LOS MUERTOS ALTAR INSTALLATION AT LONGMONT MUSEUM'S FAMILY DAY CELEBRATION





Laurie Beth Zuckerman's "Homage to Old Mexico" Dia de los Muertos altar installation at Longmont Museum's Day of the Dead Festival October 29, 2011 becomes a favorite backdrop for photos of families in costume.


Laurie Beth Zuckerman shares her photos of people enjoying her "Homage to Old Mexico" Day of the Dead altar installation at the Longmont Museum and Cultural Center's 11th Annual Día de los los Muertos Exhibition. This is the largest and most popular Day of the Dead festival in Colorado. The Family Day Celebration on October 29, 2011 drew a crowd of 2178 people appropriately dressed.

Seemed like everyone wanted to take pictures of my altar as well as take pictures of their children and spouses in front of my altar. I joined in on the fun by asking people if I could take their pictures, too. Here are some of the wonderful people I spoke to. I enjoyed meeting all of you!! 

Thank you for all your compliments: "Your altar is truly a feast for the eyes!" "Your altar is amazing!" "Absolutely stunning!" "Your artworks have brought so much joy to peoples lives!"

Your altar is absolutely spectacular. No wonder visitors to the Longmont Museum waned their photos taken in front of it. I'm horsing around with links right now as it looks like your local news station covered it and I want to see more.
