Mourning a loved one is never easy, but those left behind can find some comfort this November.

The Overture Center showcases the arts, but this month they did something…they honored the dead.

Día de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is a Mexican holiday that begins in early November and is celebrated worldwide. It commemorates ancestors and loved ones who passed away.

Community altar boxes decorated with photos, candles, flowers and illustrations are on display in this gallery. Here, creators share stories of loved ones.

Friends and family members may have passed, but their memories live on.
