The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos or All Souls' Day) is a holiday celebrated in Mexico and by Latin Americans living in the United States and Canada. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Traditions include building private altars honoring the deceased, using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts.

Plowhaus members, past and present, are invited to take part in this show. Fees to show are $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Each participant can exhibit 1-2 pieces, depending on size.

Art drop off at Studio 83 (604 Gallatin Ave. #216) needs to occur before 7:00 pm on Thursday, October 29, 2009.
Please e-mail with any questions or your intention to participate. More details to follow.
