2020 Dia de los Muertos Ofrenda: Black Lives Matter

During a time where we couldn't physically gather together, the Armory created an ofrenda (altar) for you to drive, bike, or walk by on our Raymond Avenue entrance to see our 2020 ofrenda. Utilizing the ground floor east-facing windows, the ofrenda was dedicated to the memories of Black lives lost to hate crimes and police brutality, both locally and nationally. Adorned with LED candles and traditional orange marigolds, honors Anthony McClain, Trayvon Martin, Kendrec McDade, Tamir Rice, Breonna Taylor, Emmett Till, and many others. 

This was done in partnership with NAACPPasadena and highlighted our support of the Pasadena Community Bill of Rights.
