2011 marks the 6th Annual Community Altar installation by Jaime Sweany and Michael Redman. Wandering Turtle Art Gallery/Sweany Artworks wishes to sincerely thank Carol Hedin of Sublime Designs for hosting the altar this year and continuing this meaningful and festive Bloomington tradition. We invite community members to add gifts to the altar in honor of their deceased loved ones over the course of the exhibit (October 18-November 5, 2011). During this Mexican holiday, it is customary to leave those who have preceded us in death small offerings of items they would have enjoyed during their lifetime; thus nurturing the memory of their lives and letting them know they have not been forgotten and remain a part of our lives today. Each year we build the Community Altar on the foundation of the previous years' offerings. The closing reception will take place First Friday, November 4, 5 -8 pm Candles on the altar will be lit during the reception to celebrate the festive occasion.
