(YMWO) is partnering with the City of Oakley and the Contra Costa Library to honor the tradition of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Celebrated from November 1 to November 2, the holiday aims to please the dead and those who celebrate do so by creating altars for their loved ones who are in the afterlife.

Many celebrate the holiday by going to church, revisiting graves, praying and going to the festivals in honor of the day.

Sigma Lambda Beta, a fraternity at UT-Austin, hosts a popular Dia de los Muertos event listed on the city's holiday website. "You're remembering the people you loved that have passed away". Altars are usually three-tiered, symbolizing heaven, purgatory and Earth, and decorated with the deceased person's favorite things.

Participants often build private altars, called ofrendas, to honor the deceased, and place sugar skulls, Aztec marigolds and foods and beverages favored by the departed.

The altar installation and exhibition will be an homage to Frida Kahlo, to mark 110 years since she was born. Traditional face-painting will be available for those who want to get festive.
