Living Stories/Historias Vivientes

DEADLINE FOR ENTRY: September 21, 2018

Exhibit Dates: October 24 – December 9, 2018
Guest Curator: Mary Tartaro

Mi Casa es Tu Casa is PVA’s annual exhibit inspired by Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a traditional holiday in Mexico that celebrates ancestors and others who have passed away. Altars (ofrendas) are built in homes to honor and remember the dead. Similar customs exist throughout the world and we share common ground with many cultures in our desire to honor and remember those whom we have lost.

PVA invites you into “our” home to participate in Mi Casa es Tu Casa by building an altar to remember and celebrate those whom you have lost. You are encouraged to interpret the Día de Los Muertos altar-making tradition in any manner that honors your own experiences and beliefs.
