Sacred Memories

I will be installing my Alta Altar in this show. Here is the info:

The Art Exhibition Sacred Memories: Contemporary and Cross Cultural Expression of Day of the Dead will be on display at the Pico House Gallery October 30 through November 28th, 2010 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00p.m. (Wednesday through Sunday only.)  The exhibit features work from local Los Angeles and national artists using a variety of medium including paint and sculpture.  The exhibit also includes altar and shrine installations and explores Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead and other rituals venerating departed loved ones.

You are cordially invited to attend the opening reception to be held on Friday October 29th from 6:00-9:00pm at the Pico House.  We welcome your participation in this exhibit and ask you to add a sacred memory of your own to the Community Altar which will also be on display.  Items may include a photo, special object or other non-perishable item. 

As part of the opening reception there will be a performance excerpt of “Calavereando” written and directed by Paulina Sahagun.  Experience the humorous dancing and singing of the politically satirical Calacas dancers.  It is an evening of culture and art not to be missed!
