Visit the 2nd annual exhibit celebrating the Day of the Dead/el Dia de los Muertos, a day of rich cultural significance in many parts of the world. The Gallery will again sponsor four guest artists from Caborca, Prescott’s Sister City in Sonora, Mexico. In Mexico, the celebration is colorful with whimsical skulls and skeletons, “papel picado” (perforated paper), and marigolds. On November 2, families gather at an ofrenda, or altar dedicated to the deceased, or at their gravesite, with decorated sugar skulls, candles and their loved ones’ favorite foods and drinks. This exhibit at the Gallery brings together artwork in both 2D and 3D, as local artists represent this joyous day of remembrance that connects the living and the departed.
The exhibit coincides with the annual and very popular PCA Theatre production of Ghost Talk, presented on the mainstage theatre, October 24 and 25.
