Dia de Los Muertos at Tohono Chul Park

My artpiece, Las Gitanas was accepted to show in Tohono Chul Park’s Dia De Los Muertos group show that runs through November 10, 2013. The opening reception was last night, Friday the 13th and it was amazing to see and meet so many folks. It was a blast!

If you have time, head up to see the show and enjoy the beautiful Tohono Chul Park!

My piece Las Gitanas represent the celebration and welcoming of the dead on November 2 painting also represents the celebration of culture, life, food and entertainment.  All of the images I chose to place in the painting have meaning; Barrio Viejo is depicted in the background, the bunny is life and new beginnings, the butterfly is transformation, corn is sustainability, flowers are life and death, skulls are humanity, the candle illumination, and the checkered floor is the game of life.Dia-de-los-Muertos_E-vite.indd
