Fall is just around the corner and potted mums in gorgeous yellows, golds, and umbers abound.  But, I am on the hunt for marigolds that haven’t been sprayed with insecticide to add to our Fall menu.  Yes, I like to eat flowers, and yes, I recommend you try both chrysanthemums and marigolds.  If you’ve eaten broccoli or cauliflower, you’ve eaten already eaten flowers.  Marigolds are, in fact, one-half of the curatorial theme for this next Call as well.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from The Bath House Cultural Center (Dallas, TX) for Día de los Muertos: The Path of Winged Souls, celebrating, exploring & honoring people, things & ideas that have “passed on.”  No entry fee…

Día de los Muertos:
The Path of Winged Souls

from Bauhaus Prairie Art Gallery

ELIGIBILITY:  Open to all artists 18+

MEDIA: Open to all media

THEME:  Marigolds & Monarchs. “A belief held by people from ancient Mesoamerican cultures (and some people today) is that, during the celebrations of the Day of the Dead, the spirits of the departed are given permission to return to the world of the living to visit their families. . . To aid the spirits, paths are marked with the brightly colored petals of marigold flowers so that they can create a path of light that shows the departed souls the way to the altars and their loved ones. The monarch butterflies, migrating back in large numbers to Mexico during the festivities of the Day of the Dead, have a symbolic significance as well because they are perceived as the spirits of returning loved ones making their way back home.”
