Call for Art and Writing: “Lost Places”
October 5, 2018
Submission deadline: 10/5/18
For Día de los Muertos 2018, the NHCC will present a special ofrenda remembering lost, beloved places. Local artists are invited to create art (memorials, tributes, offerings) with accompanying writing/poetry that honors a place whose absence they mourn–whether a lost region of the Amazon, Chaco Canyon, or your abuela’s kitchen. Any medium is welcome and pieces should be no larger than eight inches square. Finished work with text/poetry must be submitted by September 29. There will be a public reception for works chosen (up to 30 pieces) and the ofrenda will be open to the public from October 26- November 7. For more information, contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org, 505-553-6178.
