Art of Remembrance VR Experience

Papel picado


Explore the Art of Remembrance Altar Exhibit in Virtual Reality!

This interactive 3D experience will give you an opportunity to learn the meanings and history of this 3,000-year-old ritual of welcoming the spirit of the dead and celebrating their legacies. For the first time ever we will be including a Spartan Community Altar. This includes photographs submitted by our Spartan familia in honor of their loved ones. May their legacy and memory live on.
