PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Some new artwork was unveiled on Wednesday in Portland for Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead.

The Dia de los Muertos art installation is on display at the Portland Building in downtown.

Dia de los Muertos is an opportunity for participants to connect with lost loved ones and honor their memory.

This year the artist, Rodolfo Serna, worked with local kids to create the artwork.

Serna told FOX 12 it took months to finish the work and he's proud of the final result.

"It's an opportunity not just to share art, but to share history. And share a whole bunch of things that are really significant to our community, which is the tradition and this is a great way of sharing that because it demonstrates the visual component and the cultural piece," said Serna.

People can check out the display at The Portland Building located at 1120 SW 5th Avenue and it is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Dia de los Muertos installation runs from Oct. 28 through Nov. 4.
