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!
3rd Annual El dia de los Muertos Celebration 2011
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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! Contact Crown Hill Location Manager Bill Logan at email@example.com to reserve your exhibit booth today! www.crownhillfuneral.com (303) 233-4611
Here is the final image of a commission I recently completed. The Painting is 24" x 30" on a wood panel in acrylic washes. Thank you Chuck at Colorline, for once again, creating this scan for me. If you are an artist in the Denver area in need of high resolution captures of large scale art, please check out his link. They are friendly, fast and accurate!!! http://www.colorline-usa.com/
First Friday show opening at INDYINK located at
84 S. Broadway • Denver, COParskid explores a haunting, mesmerizing world based upon mythology, folklore, the cycle of life, and the bounds of the imagination. Grounded in nature and myth, Parskid's iconic characters take the viewer on a journey through ethereal, and other-worldly landscapes.
From the brightly colored neon to lush earth tones, Parskid's unique execution of spray enamel, and custom stencils bring life to forests, animals, and the environment as they intertwine with spirits, mystical energies and cloaked characters to create compositions that are uniquely Parskid.
