2017 SHINE Mural Festival - Artist: Jujmo

Deadline: Aug 31, 2021

Atelier de Sosi invites artists to submit work for an exhibition showcasing original artwork that represents the theme: “Día de los Muertos, A Continued Celebration of Life.” It is an open, national juried call-to-artists curated by St. Petersburg based artists Mark Noll and Danyell Bauer.

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember those who have passed on, and help support their spiritual journey. The show is about celebration of the lives and the joyful remembrance of the departed

During the Día de los Muertos, mourning was not allowed because it was believed the tears would make the spirit’s path treacherous and slippery. “This day is a joyous occasion; it’s a time to gather with everyone in your family, those alive and those dead.”

We are asking the artists to step outside of the confines of tradition and express the theme, “The Celebration of Life,” through their own vision. Feel free to use traditional styles, but do not limit yourself to them. We are looking for a variety of fine aft media, including painting, drawing, photography, clay, wood, glass, fiber, metal and mixed media.
