The Portland Building presents the third annual "Dia de los Muertos" Art Installation
October 11, 2016
The Portland Building’s art installation space is celebrating the dead with its third annual Dia de los Muertos installation.
This month is Hispanic Heritage Month and artists from Unidos Latinos Americanos (ULA) will present a Dia de los Muertos altar that will be the central display of the exhibition – including various photos, objects, and favored food & drinks.
Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a holiday that remembers and celebrates loved ones that have passed on. Originated in Mexico, the holiday is now celebrated widely throughout Latin America, the US, and beyond.
The installation invites the public to join in on the celebration and remembrance by submitting images of their own loved ones who have passed. To submit a piece, email PortlandArtAltar2016@gmail.com.
The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) sponsors the Installation Art Series. Selected through a juried process, each installation questions common perspectives through art.
Check out RACC’s website for more information about the Installation Art Series.
