Dia de los Muertos: A Juried Exhibit

Dia de los Muertos: A Juried Exhibit

In many parts of Mexico, South America and the United States, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a time to remember and celebrate the lives of friends and family. More about reveling life than remembering death, this unique day encourages us to connect with loved ones while reflecting on the ties that bind the past to present. Community participation is a powerful part of this holiday, which is why we’re calling on local artists to contribute to this lively and fun exhibit.

Artists should create pieces that showcase traditional Mexican sugar skulls merged with the artist’s aesthetic. Categories are sculpture, painting (including oil, acrylic, collage, watercolor and mixed media), photography, prints and drawings.

A high-traffic month for the Alliance, this exhibit will be up during Pride, Italian Fest, Rocky Horror, Arts on Tap Fundraiser and other events. All entries must be submitted online no later than September 20.
