Day of the Dead
In October 2009, the production model of Spark changed, moving from a stand alone series of original programs to the production of Spark segments, which will be premiered throughout the year as part of the newly re-vamped This Week in Northern California.
In this segment, visit the classroom of Amalia Mesa-Bains at the California State University at Monterey Bay as they compile a collective class altar, following the traditions of Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.
This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
See how Amalia Mesa-Bains's students compile a collective altar, following the traditions an ancient Aztec holiday, by gracing it with flowers, candles, and other offerings.
