Call to Artists – Feast of the Dearly Departed
This fall, Tucson Botanical Gardens will honor Tucson’s Mexican-American traditions through a month-long series of events, celebrating local art and culture.
Events will include several public workshops and a traditional Day of the Dead shrine, or ofrenda, for personal offerings. The series will culminate on October 25 from 5 to 8pm, at the Feast of the Dearly Departed,a family event of remembrance. There will be a procession through the Gardens to Nuestro Jardín or the Barrio Garden, which honors Tucson’s Mexican-American neighborhood gardens, as well as music, food & drink, storytelling and more.
***As part of this celebration, we are inviting local artists, community groups and school groups to submit life-sized dancing skeletons to adorn our procession pathway. ***
We encourage the community to have FUN and get creative in making a skeleton in the style of Dia de Los Muertos, which are colorful, often cartoon-like images that capture the celebration’s whimsical spirit. The exhibition will run from October 2 through November 4. All submitted work should come ready to display and have the ability to be exhibited outdoors, withstanding inclement weather.
All artists with displayed artwork will be eligible for free tickets to the event.
Artists or groups interested need to reserve their space by September 12 by contacting: Melissa D’Auria at 326-9686×35
Skeletons need to be completed and delivered to the Gardens by September 26.
