Day of the Dead Exhibit


If you are in the Twin Cities area, you've got to check out the Day of the Dead post card exhibit at Open Book in downtown Minneapolis.  It is running through November 6th, 2011, so you have a little bit of time to go and see it.  If you are not in town, I've included a number of photos from my visit to the show today.  Both my mom and I entered post cards.  It was so fun to see them hanging among all of the other wonderful works of art.  We were blown away by the great work of all of the participants.  
So, I am wondering.  Do you celebrate or have any rituals around your loved ones passing on to the next life?  Have you ever been to Mexico to see a Day of the Dead celebration?  There are some great books out with fabulous photographs.  One of the books that was in the Minnesota for Book Arts Shop was The Days of the Dead:  Mexico's Festival of Communion with the Departed.

Impressive coverage of the "Day of the Dead" Exhibition. Supplying additional reference material for those uninformed, is a very nice touch. You have a special ability to capture both the macro and micro nature of an art presentation. Thanks
