I am honored to be part of the "Cultural Messages: Symbolism Through the Ages" Exhibition at Perdue University during the PMC Conference 2010.
My piece selected was my copper clay "Calavera" that symbolized the Day of the Dead in my culture from Mexico. We celebrate the loves ones that have died by honoring them with alters and skulls that represent them in life.
For my culture, dead it is not something that we need to be sad or scare of, on the other hand, we celebrate our loves ones for what they lived and their love for life and family.
It is a pleasure to share some of my traditions with my work and I am going to be very happy to part of these group of talented artists in the exhibition.
The exhibition was curated by the PMC Guild Director Jeanette Landenwitch specifically for the conference.
