CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Arts Council, Wyoming State Museum, Cheyenne Botanic Gardens and Cheyenne Depot Museum have initiated a call for local artists to create original artwork for the 2022 community Día de los Muertos celebrations.
Submissions are due on Aug. 7 at 11:59 p.m. Work must be completed by Sept. 26.
The citywide Día de los Muertos events seek to share the cultural significance of this holiday and provide welcoming spaces for people to celebrate publicly. The host organizations are actively working to increase the authenticity and educational value of the events. The first major step is inviting local artists to create authentic artwork that will be used for event posters, social media ads and other promotional materials.
Artists of all mediums are encouraged to apply. However, the winning artist must create a work of art that will work well for print and digital advertising. If an artist creates a 3D work of art, the piece will need to be portrayed in 2D so that it will meet marketing needs. One selected artist will receive $750 to create a final work. Once the piece is created, the State Museum, Botanic Gardens and Depot Museum will utilize their in-house design professionals to create a regional marketing campaign featuring the work.
The Día de los Muertos celebrations are family friendly and inclusive of all people. Artwork must be appropriate for children. Artists are encouraged to reflect on their own cultural and traditional connections to Día de los Muertos when creating their artwork. Artists should consider the following goals when creating their proposal:
