2022 Art Exhibition
El Regreso de las Almas

The Return of the Souls

CALL FOR ARTISTS

To celebrate the return of the festival after a 2-year break, the theme of the 2022 Dia de los Muertos Art Exhibition is “El Regreso de las Almas / The Return of the Souls.”  On Dia de los Muertos, the deceased are depicted in skeletal form full of vitality as they were in life – talking, laughing, celebrating, and enjoying their usual activities. As we emerge from the pandemic, we are expecting an especially vibrant exhibition of works that express the joy of life.

Works of art should address the return of the souls on the Days of the Dead – coming home to the land of the living, reveling in festive activities, reuniting with loved ones, and rejoicing in happiness.  This colorful exhibition, welcoming and celebrating the dead, will be displayed at K Space Contemporary

Oct. 15 – Nov. 11, 2022.
