Yesterday Klee and I attended the Day Of The Dead Celebration at first city arts center. I had submitted a work of art for the celebration and was looking forward to donning my best “dead” attire.
Art Beyond Walls and First City Art Center hosted the first ever Day of the Dead festival on opening day of Pensacola’s Foo Foo Fest.
Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the dead) is a traditional Mexican holiday, that honors family members who have passed away. Basically, celebrating those who may have passed physically, but are still here spiritually. A day where the veil between both worlds is blurred.
Live music, art, altars, face painting, a second-line processional, food trucks with authentic Mexican food (yum), hot glass demos, live story recordings, children’s activities and a Day of the Dead art market were part of the festivities.
This was a blast, the murals, the fire dancing, the art, the vibe, the whole thing was pretty awesome. I was honored to have my art displayed in the way that it was.
This was the first day of Foo Foo Fest, and a fantastic start to the festival. Take a look at all the awesome stuff they have in store for Pensacola at http://www.foofoofest.com/events/
We want to wish everyone a happy, safe and beautiful holiday season. Love you and thank you for being so awesome!
We are excited to invite you to our open studio this Saturday!
