Artists and community members are asked to submit proposals for ofrendas/altars that honor the deceased and/or pays tribute to departed ancestors. Ofrendas honoring the dearly departed members of the greater Richmond community will be given preference.

Open to all members of the Bay Area community as well as established and emerging artists of various mediums, schools, and community organizations. Food and live plants are prohibited.

The altars will be on display for the public in the Seaver Gallery. Artists will be provided a stipend for their time and talent at the completion of the exhibition. Artists must install/uninstall the altars, as well as, make a welfare check over the course of the exhibit week. We hope to have six altars, depending on the quality and quantity of the artist submission.

Participants will be invited to make an additional smaller one-day altar for the 4th Annual Halloween Day Trick or Treat event on 23rd Street in Richmond for an additional stipend. The altars will be displayed in an area with a large prearranged ofrenda that the community will be asked to contribute images of departed loved ones. More information about the 23rd Street event will be provided after the selection process.
