Ancestors Exhibition (Annual Dia de los Muertos Community Celebration with Dance, Music and Food)
Dear Artist and Friends, Please consider submitting your work for an exhibition scheduled to open October 27th from 3 until 7pm entitled “Ancestors.” This exhibition has been planned to acknowledge those who have passed and the people left behind who cope with loss. Loss is part of all of our shared experience. However this past summer in Huerfano County brought the Spring Creek fire and its aftermath. This was more than most of us were prepared to comprehend. In respect to those who were affected by the fire and being evacuated and many who lost their homes, the Museum of Friends is inviting artists to create a new installation that explores mourning, loss or any aspect of the memory of ancestors. Each participant will be given an approximate 10’ space to fill with photographs, zeroxes, gi-clee prints, original art, sculpture, fabric works and material objects that reference the ancestor who has passed. You must fill out and submit this entry form before October 13th. "Ancestors Exhibition" – October 27th-January 26th Please see Artist Submission form for relevant dates and information or give us a call to discuss your idea and how it may fit in with the show: 719-738-2858 or visit or email:
