About This Year's Theme The exhibition is open to artists of all backgrounds, national origin, gender identities and expressions. We welcome stories and traditions from all cultures. All Altars/Ofrendas and artworks address the aspect of Day of the Dead that revolves around passing on the myths, legends, historical events, and everyday experiences that make up our diverse community. Artists were encouraged to submit Día de los Muertos themed work or create original altars that depict or address the way we connect with our ancestors or predecessors and how we share their stories. They are dedicated to an individual, a group, a regional community or subculture, or to a forgotten civilization, highlighting stories that have traditionally been ignored, diminished, or hidden. Media included: ceramics, collage, drawing, illustration, installation, painting, photography, sculpture. Submissions for 2018 Thank you for your interest in MOLAA's Día de los Muertos Exhibition.
