Overview

Mi Casa es Tu Casa is PVA’s annual exhibit inspired by Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a traditional holiday in Mexico that celebrates ancestors and others who have passed away. Altars (ofrendas) are built in homes and public spaces to honor and remember the dead. Similar customs exist throughout the world and we share common ground with many cultures in our desire to honor and remember those whom we have lost. Our theme this year is Pasajes y Puentes / Passages & Bridges. Passage is the act of moving through, over, under or past something on the way from one place to another. Boats are symbolic of passages as well as the journeys and transitions that we make in life and in death. Bridges can symbolize progress, connections, transitions and stability, as well as a way to reach a destination. Opening Reception: Sunday, October 27th 2:00 – 4:00 pm. Performances by: El Sistema and Ballet Folklórico Olin.  November 10th: Poetry Reading at the gallery 2:30- 3:30 pm.
