Artes de la Rosa's Cultural Center for the Arts Exhibition Committee seeks proposals for the 2022 Ofrenda de Fort Worth installation in the Main Gallery. Each year, we seek an artist who can envision and transform the main gallery into a unique Día de los Muertos Ofrenda that embodies the strong cultural ritualistic elements of Día de los Muertos, the artistic style of the artist, and a fresh contemporary vision.
Artist will receive an unrestricted $1000.00 stipend to produce the installation. This unique opportunity is exclusive to Artes de la Rosa Cultural Center for the Arts, and we hope many of you participate.
Identifying as Latino, latinX groups, individuals or collectives.
Artist(s) must keep in mind:
Installation should allow for some participation from the public, following the traditions of leaving ofrendas.
Keep a balanced approach between tradition and contemporary artistic approaches.
Take advantage of the large space.
Artes de la Rosa Cultural Center for the Arts is a community organization that fosters creativity and engagement with the arts locally and regionally. This engagement encourages personal growth and well-being of the individual as well as the community. Artes de la Rosa is extremely proud to be a keeper of the Dia de los Muertos Traditions in Fort Worth, and we want your installation to enhance the ADLR experience.
