The Muskegon Center for the Arts and the Red Lotus Gallery are taking submissions for the next Gallery Presentation of Dias de los Muertos, to honor those who have passed. “Day of the Dead” (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died and help support their spiritual journey.
Submit your creation of artwork or bring in pictures of your loved ones who have passed. A wall will be created to pay homage to these people in your life who have inspired you. The art submissions deadline is September 26 by 5:30pm. To obtain a submission form for this event, visit muskegonca.org. There is a small fee of $5 if your piece of artwork is not for sale when you submit it. See the submission form for more information.
