This Call to Artists invites all artists living and working in the United States and Mexico. This is an exciting opportunity to have your artwork published in book form and for award recognition. Selected artwork will be published in an art book titled, “Dia De Los Muertos y La Ofrenda en Arizona.”

1st, 2nd and 3rd place artists will be recognized with an award. All Paper Mache Masks or Paper Mache Big Heads for Giant Puppets will be displayed at our Grand Avenue Art and Car Show event on Sunday, October 31, 2021. If artists live locally, we encourage the artists to wear their paper mache masks or become the puppeteer during our Dia De Los Muertos 5:00 p.m. procession to the ofrenda (altar) to honor our dead. Photography of the procession will take place for future event marketing collateral.
