Festival de las Calaveras Arts Exhibition: Día de los Muertos
Sep 21 @ 12:00 pm – Dec 9 @ 6:00 pm
Exhibition curated by Ana Laura Juarez
Co-presented by Tlalnepantla Arts and Intermedia Arts

Festival de las Calaveras Arts Exhibition: Day of the Dead is a multimedia, multidisciplinary arts exhibition that explores contemporary expressions and traditional elements related to Day of the Dead intertwined with social justice issues that affect the Latinx community, engaging the participation of Latinx artists at various stages of development. The exhibition features work by Jonathan Herrera, Melodee Strong, Douglas Padilla, Tania Galaviz de Espinoza, Rebekah Crisanta de Ybarra, Luis Fitch, & Ana Laura Juarez.

Festival de las Calaveras is a multimedia Latinx music and arts festival volunteer-organized and presented by community group Tlalnepantla Arts. The festival is centered on the traditional and contemporary celebration of Day of the Dead, an indigenous Mexican tradition which honors the memory of ancestors and departed loved ones, the duality of life and death, and the corn harvest season.

Festival de las Calaveras is composed of a series of events that take place annually in the fall and include live music, dance performance, puppet theater, visual arts exhibition, multimedia animation, spoken word, and family art-making activities. Festival events take place at leading Twin Cities’ venues, claiming and creating space for Latinx arts, artists, and community.

Exhibition Dates: September 21-December 9, 2017 

Gallery Hours: Tuesdays-Fridays 12-6PM | Saturdays in October 12-5PM

Students who are identified with potential are invited to attend the second audition phase.  The second audition happens in Summer Session throughout the month of July in Winnipeg. Students experience life in residence, the daily schedule, connect with artistic faculty and build on their potential.

After a month of intense training, students who are accepted to one of the Professional Programs will begin their journey as young artists in September 2018.
