Regional artist Milt Coronado (@milt1coronado) will create a series of Ofrenda Murals for Dia de los Muertos.

The mixed-media murals will be original concepts and incorporate images submitted electronically by residents, student collaboration, and lighting components. The murals will be installed outdoors for the community to visit through November 29.
