Our 2016 theme is:

"Sheep don't vote,  feed the chupacabra.  ¡Reclamando nuestra querencia!"



Hello artists and parade floaters:

We are writing to invite you to submit artwork to be used to announce and publicize the 2016 South Valley Día de Los Muertos Parade and Celebration, taking place this year on November 6.  

The winning artwork will be displayed on silk-screened t-shirts; tote-bags and other fund-raising items.  The artwork will also be displayed on posters and flyers, as well as the Muertos y Marigolds Facebook page and webpage.

We would greatly appreciate your submissions to support this beloved community project.  Here are some instructions so that the selection process will go smoothly:

  • Use heavy lines and avoid deep detail.

  • Size your artwork to fit on an 8 ½” by 11” sheet.

  • Email artwork to Vanessa Alvarado, the Parade and Celebration Art Director, at Vanesssala@gmail.com

  • Please submit your artwork by MAY 20, 2016

The South Valley Día de Los Muertos Celebration maintains and honors the arts and culture of our community.  The artwork will support this non-commercial, non-profit, grassroots-organized project.

If you decide to submit an image, please understand that the organizing committee will supervise the use of your image and ensure that it will be used solely for these non-profit community purposes.
