Altar Contest,
November 1-2, 2022

Cempasúchil Exhibition

During the Día de Muertos celebration on November 1st and 2nd, Sigma Delta Pi organized an event where more than 30 classes participated with the collaboration of hundreds of students. Students participated in an “Altar Contest”, an activity that required some research on the tradition. A total of twelve altars were exhibited. Also, students also competed in a “Calaverita Contest”, a traditional literary composition that is part of the Día de Muertos celebration. Finally, there was a “Flower Installation”, in which students of every race, religion, and campus demographic participated. Our main goal was to create cultural awareness and community within the Spanish department  while engaging with other ASU students.

A Day of the Dead collaborative art piece by Sigma Delta Pi and ASU students

Carla León Celaya, treasurer of the Theta Epsilon Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi and a doctoral student in the Department of Spanish, devised and produced a piece of ephemeral art built throughout Monday, November 1st, with more than 300 students, teachers, and members from the ASU community.

This creative and performative activity in Hayden Library allowed presented information about the marigold flower and its relation with the Day of the Dead and the global reach of the celebration.

In addition, it opened new connections between the Hispanic world and the rest of the vast international community of ASU. The brief gesture of selecting a flower and placing it on the frame along the name of a deceased loved one produced constellations of meanings and emotions. From Honduras to India, marigolds are part of different rituals, offerings, and celebrations. In permanent conversation with the participants, we have learned from all of those who shared anecdotes, stories, and reflections sparked by the yellow flower.

Thank you so much for choosing our cake! We made this vegan cake from scratch and the members decorated it all together. We wanted the decoration to represent all the events we had last semester, which were many!

It really means a lot to have won the competition.

¡Muchísimas gracias!
