This year, China Poblano’s ofrenda will be dedicated to Pedro Linares, creator of the alebrijes. Born in Mexico City in 1906, Linares created the paper maché alebrijes from a dream he had in his 30s while battling illness. In his dream of death and rebirth, he envisioned a mountainous terrain inhabited by fierce creatures. His alebrijes were revered by other elite artists throughout Mexico and around the world. After his death in 1992, the Linares family continues to produce alebrijes, and many other artists across Mexico keep the tradition alive.
Tickets are $65 all inclusive. You must be 21+ to attend this event.
