    October 27 - December 4 @ 2nd Floor Gallery - Grayson College

    El Corazon (The Heart) / October 27, 2014 to December 4, 2014 El Corazon means the heart. Its image is derived from Card 27 from a Mexican bingo game known as Loteria. The image of the heart has often been used as a symbol in Mexican and Latin American art. El Corazon (the heart) can serve as a symbol for courage, sprit, love, affection, compassion, sympathy, or as a term of endearment. Artists have approached the heart as an expression of burden, whimsy, broken, sentimental, devotion, and sacred or divine love. Artists are called upon to create their version of El Corazon (the Heart). 2nd Floor Gallery – Grayson College, Arts & Communication Center Accept artwork: Friday, October 24, 1pm to 3pm or by appointment Reception: TBA Pick-up artwork: Friday, December 5, 1pm to 3pm

On November 2, Hispanic families gather at the graves of family members to honor deceased loved ones.

The idea is to create a place that commemorates the accomplishments and life of the deceased. These altars are typically bright and colorful and are not designed out of sadness or mourning, but out of joy. The centerpiece is usually a photo a departed family member or whoever the altar is dedicated to. Also photos or statues of patron saints as well as offerings are placed on the altar. Artists and/or groups are asked to create an altar or shrine for El Dia de lo
