AVE 50 STUDIOS PRESENTS:

Cajitas y Recuerdos: Cigar Box Shrines (Little Boxes and Memories) will commemorate the long-held tradition of the Day of the Dead through a show devoted entirely to cigar-box shrines. Our theme is purposely broad; the work from our artists explore pertinent social, political, personal and/or spiritual concepts through a cigar-box shrine.

Opening Night Reception: Saturday, October 11, 2014 from 7-10 pm

October 11 through November 2, 2014

“Dia de los Muertos” is traditionally a day in which friends and family in México, Central America, and the diaspora celebrate the memories of loved ones who have passed. Altars and shrines have been a primary vehicle for the celebration of this long-held tradition. As part of our annual Dia de los Muertos exhibit, Avenue 50 Studio has purposely invited artists from different national, regional, and ethnic backgrounds and various aesthetic approaches, to communicate what is important to their world as they see it.
