The celebration of El Día de los Muertos is a joyful occasion of remembrance, involving feasts and festivities through which death is recognized as a part of the natural process of living. Contemporary celebrations of this holiday bear both ancient traditions and a modern flair and have become a rich part of Tucson’s cultural heritage. This exhibition will celebrate the creative ways artists honor this deeply meaningful holiday.
Artists from the region are invited to submit 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional works in any media for consideration in this juried exhibition.
