CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Dia de los Muertos Ofrendas at DIA

The Detroit Institute of Arts, in collaboration with the Mexican Consulate of Detroit, extends an open call for proposals that celebrate the Mexican tradition of Ofrenda altars. This program is designed to educate and encourage audiences to engage in dialogue about and in celebration of Mexican-American heritage and traditions. We are excited to reach out to local artists and community members for their ideas. The Artist demonstration will commence with the installation of panel-selected Ofrendas from October 19th – 21st, which will then be on display for the public from October 23rd – November 1st. On Sunday, November 1st from 3 pm to 4 pm, all Ofrenda artists will participate in an artist talk in order to provide insight into the inspiration behind the display.

The DIA invites proposals to create contemporary Ofrendas within the museum’s Rivers Galleries.
