I find it interesting that an organization whose majority funding comes from taxpayer based government organizations would get involved in sponsoring a ancestral worship/pagan beleif based art show. What happened to the old outcry of separation of church and state? I bet if I had an art show championing my civil rights under the 2nd amendment people would freak out.

FYI, I do not vote, I have no religion and I am not registered with any political party.

thanks Mark Randall Kilburn for the Comment:
and FYI: What happened to the old outcry of separation of church and state? === never worked, it was a utopic idea generated by K. marx, ( look at Cuba state and the roll of the religion = more info please read The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels and also visit the works of Hagel )
Day of dead is a Prehispanic Celebration, ( not a religion or worship)
is like when you make a momorial : We just make a Huge deal of it.

Balam,
Thanks, Always sobering to honor those that have passed. Congratulations on your show it looks like it will be a blast!
I am actually very open minded toward
culture and religion and have friends back home ( California and Nevada ) that have
older, pre-Christian belief systems. I am an old UFO guy from way back. I also enjoy it when people raise challenging questions. Keep up the great art!

  • "I found Lisa Mikulski to be just the right resource at the right time: focused, professional, with a great eye for color and design, and with very fast turnaround time for getting images up on the web -- an artist's best friend and there when you need her! She's got a really good command of the two worlds we as artists now inhabit: the technical issues of cyberspace in today's market, combined with bottom line issues of artistic judgement. I highly recommend her as a great resource for web design, artistic and gallery management."
