Ofrenda Installation First Glance

This image is a shot I took of Angela standing next to our Ofrenda installation project for the Day of the Dead / Dia De Los Muertos show in Clarendon / Arlington this Saturday (10/13) at Mexicali Blues. Tonight was the first night people had to install their art and it almost turned into a mini show opening! So many people walking by on the street stopped to look, come in, talk, and take postcards out with them. If this traffic is any indication, the show is going to be a wild success.

There is some other outstanding art already there – stuff that moves, stuff that glows, wood cuts, altars, stuff that lights up. There will be music, workshops, and fun. Everyone should stop by – even if you plan on hitting the artdc.org show as well, there’s time to do both!
