Blank White Box
October 27 – 29, 2023
Entry Deadline: Midnight, October 1st
The Arroyo Arts Collective again asks artists to explore a deepened understanding and meaning of All Saints Day, Dia de los Muertos, Ching Ming, Obon, Samhain, the Mourner’s Kaddish and of all rituals, historically and worldwide, associated with how we grieve, how we continue to love, and how we go on in the face of loss.
We are accepting submissions for 2-dimensional work, in any media, no larger than 24”x 24” (including frame), which reflect the theme of remembering our loved ones or, more broadly, loved places, times or situations.
We can accept 3D work if artist provides pedestal for display.
We invite artists to draw upon the heritage of their distinct culture, and how that culture honors their ancestors, respecting the various ethnicities that call Highland Park home. It is our intent to create a space where those who have gone before us are remembered and revered. The rituals of death are different in each culture, but grief is universal, as is the need for a sense of continuity with our ancestors and history. Thus, as we are different, we are the same.
