Feliz Dia De Los Muertos, Ginette Rondeau, Curator & Editor of the Olvera-Street.com newsletter is delighted to announce their ?Annual Dia De Los Muertos Juried Exhibition.? The entry form and details of this exhibition are posted at www.Olvera-Street.com. The deadline for artists? submissions is September. Heartfelt works of art are being solicited: altars, painting, sculptures, photography, etchings, mix-media, and more. It is essential that the work represent the true meaning of Dia De Los Muertos.

Ideally, some of the altar entries would include interactive elements that would allow public participation. For example, if you created a personal altar for someone who died of cancer, then you could dedicate that altar to whoever inspired it and also to all cancer victims. Many of their visitors in the past have been very grateful for the opportunity to put photos or simply write names of their beloved on the altar. It has been quite touching and it gives the gallery a life of its own.

She is looking forward to all the wonderful entries to create an exciting place to journey. As you may already know, the exhibit has been a precious place for their visitors and the countless school children that attend. She has been very proud that to share this treasured and very loving tradition. The exhibit has been a place where their guests can feel free to speak of their beloved, to reflect and to heal. It is a wonderful way to honor our beloved and a beautiful experience to share with others.
