Submission Deadline: August 3, 2020

The Maude Kerns Art Center invites artists to submit to the 27th annual Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Exhibit, October 9 – November 2, featuring two- and three-dimensional work related to the theme of the Mexican Day of the Dead.

The Día de los Muertos celebration blends the ancient harvest rituals of the Aztec god of death and the Roman Catholic holidays of All Saints and All Souls days. The celebration honors the dead and acknowledges the link between the communities of the living and the dead.

Submissions must be postmarked by Monday, August 3. Artists are invited to submit up to five pieces for consideration by the jury. Digital images should be submitted on CD or flash drive in jpeg format (medium-sized at a resolution of 300 dpi or higher). One image per piece. There is a $15 submission fee.

For an application form, visit the Art Center’s website at or contact Sarah Ciampa at the Maude Kerns Art Center at 541-345-1571.
