Booth at El Dia de Los Muertos at Olinger Crown Hill

I will have a booth with Lil Wing for this celebration! It is going to be an awesome day with altars, mariachis and folklorico dancers as well as other vendors. There will also be a Calaveras "Sugar Skulls" work shop for kids!
They also have a call for entry for vendors and folks who would like to create an altar for the celebration. I have posted the guidelines below the location info.

I will be back with more updates!

OFERENDAS / ALTARS

Have someone who you would like to honor or commemorate this Dia de los Muertos? A great way is to create an oferenda! Crown Hill is hosting the third annual El dia de los Muertos Celebration and will display oferendas as part of the celebration. We are looking for six oferendas/altars: categories include traditional, contemporary and artistic.

Guidelines include: table top and free standing, must not be larger than 5 feet long and 4 feet wide (there will be some floor space). Displays should be reasonably family friendly. If you are interested in submitting an oferenda/altar for display, please email Crown Hill Location Manager Bill Logan at william.logan@dignitymemorial.com with a brief summary of your idea by Friday, Sept. 9, 2011. Please include your

daytime contact information. In the event of a huge response, decisions will be based on your summary description.

ARTISAN/VENDOR BOOTHS

In addition to food, fun, entertainment and celebrating those who have passed before us, Crown Hill’s 3rd annual El dia de los Muertos Celebration will again host Day of the Dead

artist and vendor booths. Booth fees are $45.00 per booth. Wares should be primarily El dia de los Muertos related, but other work by the artist is welcome. Exhibitor space includes one eight (8) foot-long table. Exhibitors are encouraged to bring a canopy to shade from sun and protect from inclement weather. Register early - only 24 spaces available!

Sunday Sketch Day




As I am gearing up for the next couple of art shows, I have been in super, idea, sketch mode. Sunday was a perfect fall day here in Colorado and rather then be cooped up inside drawing - I went to the park in between Civic Center Park and the State Capitol. Unknown to me there was a festival with, paleterias, mexicano musica, and lots folks in good spirits, celebrating Mexican Independence Day. There were also a LOT of very hectic boots inspiring the sketch "Mr. Che Doh'. I didnt have my camera handy or this post would include a shot of the most INSANE silver, sequin-ey, sparkly, looks like they belonged in a Beyonce music video they were so blingy, "roach stomper" boots I have EVER seen! There were several interested little kids stopping by and I gave another day of the dead drawing to this little girl who gave me a thumbs up on my drawing. I did neglect to photograph it but I gave it to her on the condition she never throw it away... Heres hopin! HA! I also started working on a few small paintings, basica shapes and making said shapes opaque... It was a very wonderful amazing day yesterday!
