About the Shrine:                                                                               
A shrine serves as a type of memorial dedicated to an individual or a group of people who have died. Shrines range in size and scope. Many of us are familiar with a wide variety of shrines here in the United States—ranging from the World War II Memorial to small roadside shrines filled with pictures, flowers, and notes.

All shrines provide relatives, friends, and the public an opportunity to honor and reflect upon the lives led by those who have died. Shrines, like altars, have become a way of telling stories about people. They provide individuals in the community another way to express and transform loss into an experience of beauty.

The Art Center’s shrine exhibition plays an integral role in the El Día de los Muertos celebration to be held Saturday, October 30, 2010, 3-8 p.m.

Those in attendance will be able to view the shrines along a lit path in ARTSPARK. Tours of the exhibition will also be scheduled with community groups throughout the run of the show.                                                 
How do I make a shrine?
Complete the shrine proposal form (submit by Friday, July 1, 2010).
Once your shrine proposal is accepted, make an appointment to pick up a wooden wine crate provided by the Art Center (sizes vary, but most crates are 19”x12”x7”deep). The crate is the main structure for your shrine.
Place memorial items in and/or around the crate. Be creative! Items used in your shrine must be securely adhered to the box in some way. (Since shrines will be outdoors, please remember that the Art Center cannot be held responsible for any items that may be taken from the shrine or vandalized.)
Make sure the display is weatherproof. We recommend some type of sealant—such as an outdoor polyurethane spray.
The Art Center will place mounting hardware on the crate before you pick it up. After you deliver your shrine, we will install and light each shrine on a pole outside in ARTSPARK.

About the Altar (Ofrenda)
The goal of constructing an altar, or ofrenda, is to honor and welcome back the soul of the deceased person. An altar may be dedicated to an individual or a group of people who have departed. Items on the altar should celebrate the spirit of the deceased in a way that encourages enjoyable memories.

Please note that the altars are to be for specific people, not animals, political or domestic causes. If you wish to work with these themes you should fill out a Shrine application. If you have questions about whether or not your subject is appropriate please contact us.

Applying for an Altar
You will need to fill out the Altar application attached to these guidelines. Please be aware that we reserve the right to choose which altars will be accepted into the show. We will make every effort to accommodate as many participants as possible. In the case of inappropriate subject matter we reserve the right to turn down your application – but will contact you to discuss possible modifications that would make your altar fit in with our celebration.

Please pay special attention to the Description of Elements section of the application. It is important that we know how you will be constructing your altar to make sure that the hardware and materials used are compatible with our gallery space. In addition, we are available to consult you in your altar construction in order to make the best looking altar possible.

How is the altar structured?
  • Altars traditionally have three levels: (1) elements on the floor, (2) elements on a table or other elevated area, and (3) elements on a wall.
  • For our exhibition, altar formats may be interpreted in traditional and/or contemporary ways. Altars can be viewed as multi-media works of art.
  • Objects may be arranged around or over the levels of the altar—examples are a canopy, archway, or hanging from the ceiling. Important: Please don’t include items on your altar that are easily removable. Altars often have very cherished, irreplaceable objects on them–these are encouraged–however, they should be securely fastened to your piece.
  • Traditionally, flowers and flower petals are often arranged to lead people to the altar. If you choose to add flowers, please keep in mind that these need to be cared for and contained in some way.
  • Size Limits: Height: up to 8 feet Depth: no more than 2 ½ feet Width: may vary, but tends to be 3 to 4 feet.
Traditional Altars
Include many of the following elements:
  • Fresh flowers or flower petals—typically marigolds or other yellow or orange flowers. Known as xempasuchitl, the flower of the dead, these make a path to the altar for the deceased’s soul.
  • Candles—to light the way to the altar for the deceased’s soul.
  • Papel picado, or cut tissue-paper banners—with images of skeletons and flowers.
  • Foods beloved by the deceased person, especially fresh food.
  • Photographs of the deceased person or other representative objects that tell the story of the deceased.
  • Toys, trinkets, and items that represent or were owned by the deceased.
  • Incense or fragrant herbs, in particular sage, sweetgrass or copal (traditional Mexican incense)—to purify the altar, represent spirit & guide the soul through scent.
  • Salt is also used for purification.
  • Icons, retablos, rosaries or other religious symbols or objects as appropriate.
  • Vessels containing water—representing the life force, and so the soul may also quench its thirst, or other drink favorites of the deceased. *Please do not place full bottles of liquor/beer on altars for the length of the exhibition.
  • Figurines of skeletons or skulls—such as sugar skulls decorated with icing.
  • Pan de muerto–traditional Mexican bread baked for the occasion—found in many panaderias (bakeries) in October.

Contemporary /Non-Traditional Altars
Might incorporate the following items:
  • Artistic elements–sculpture, paintings, fabric, text, video, music, string lights, etc.
  • Non-traditional structure or design, such as an altar that is not made in three levels.
What are the requirements for installing an altar?
Each artist installs his or her altar creation. Your design should be able to be installed by one person within a couple of hours or within several 2-hour shifts. If the altar is more complex or will take longer, please recruit and bring helpers as necessary. Other artists installing at the same time as you might need brief assistance, so please be prepared to help each other out. Creating an altar is traditionally a collaborative process!

Keep in mind that all Altars must be installed no later than 10 p.m. on Thursday, October 7th. Altars will NOT be allowed to be installed after this point – no exceptions!

General Guidelines for Altar Construction
  • Keep your safety and the public’s safety in mind when installing your altar.
  • OK to hammer nails into the wall to hang objects.
  • Please bring your own tools and hardware.
  • Upon request, the Art Center will provide ladders for all artists to share.
  • Do Not plan to draw or paint directly on the wall.
  • Do Not use Velcro, foam tape or double-stick tape to attach items to the walls.
  • Do Not use stickers, contact paper, or similar materials
  • Keep food packaged or wrapped to discourage vermin.
  • Candles will only be lit during the public celebration. Please provide supervision for lit candles.
  • The public will be encouraged to lay flowers and bread on the altars during the celebration. If you do not wish to have these additions please let us know in your proposal.
  • Feel free to make your altar as expressive and artistic as you wish!
Text and signage:
  • NEW procedure regarding label and bio: Once your altar design is accepted, please email us your full label copy and a brief bio about yourself or your group. This will help speed up the process of getting your label formatted and translated into Spanish. (Please let us know if you can provide your own Spanish translation.) We will do our best to get a draft to you for final review.
  • Your label may include an explanation of elements of the altar, a poem, or your remembrances of the deceased individual you are honoring. Please keep this additional text to one-half of a page or less.
  • After the altars are up, the Art Center will mount/hang the label text (and light altars appropriately).

    Installation Artists Sought for Historic Sight in Philadelphia, PA

    Installation Artists Sought for Historic Sight in Philadelphia, PA

    Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site seeks proposals for its 2011 tour season and beyond. Deadline is Tuesday, June 15, 2010, 4:00 pm. Full details are available on the website at http://www.easternstate.org/exhibits/guidelines.php.

    Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world's first true "penitentiary," a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of convicts.

    Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America's most notorious criminals, including bank robber Willie Sutton and Al Capone.

    Tours today include the cellblocks, solitary punishment cells, Al Capone's Cell, and Death Row. A critically-acclaimed series of artists installations is free with admission.

    Contact Eastern State Penitentiary at 215-236-5111 x13 or email sk@easternstate.org or visit http://www.easternstate.org/exhibits/guidelines.php.
