El Museo del Barrio  The United States' First Latino and Latin American Arts Museum


Calling all artists! @elmuseo is seeking proposals from artists to create an altar as part of our #DiadelosMuertos Celebration. The main altar, which includes traditional elements and integrates contemporary issues, is installed in El Café at El Museo and seen by visitors from October through early November. The altar will serve as a learning tool for visiting students and families to understand the traditions of Día de los Muertos and also to discuss the contemporary subject matter the altar presents. An honorarium will be provided. Deadline is September 8, 2017 | see link in bio for more info #dod #altar #calaveras #tradition

"Several of these hole patterns are drilled into the floorboards of one of the oldest African-American churches in the United States in Savannah, Georgia. It is believed that the drilled pattern functioned as breathing holes for runaway slaves who, hiding under the floor, awaited safe transport north. The union of that moment and of Garvey’s black nationalist flag acknowledge the resilience of the human spirit to survive even as we continue the need to remind America that Black Lives Matter." - @nariward #uptown #badhombre #artist | On view NOW at @queensmuseum @pafacademy @21chotels @creativetimenyc #usfcam
