An Ofrenda (Spanish: “offering“) is a collection of objects placed on a ritual altar during the annual and traditionally Mexican Dia de los Muertos celebration. An ofrenda, which may be quite large and elaborate, is usually created for an individual person who has died.
In honor of the 75th Anniversary of The Roeper School, classes, groups, and individuals came together to create an ofrenda to celebrate the lives of the people who contributed significantly to the story of the school. Boxes were created to commemorate each person and have been placed together to create a traditional Ofrenda in the Bretzlaff Commons on the Bloomfiled Hills campus. The ofrenda is currently on display through November 3. A community reception will be held on the evening of November 1st at 6:00pm.
