Dream Monsters and Alebrijes: deMeng de Los Muertos
October 23rd to November 5th, 2018
Every year I make a pilgrimage to an area with street art about a mile or two from the hotel. Getting there can be fun.
My Stephen Shore imitation
I ran into a man who was preparing paper mache puppets for the next comparsa.
Today we had class from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. My goal today is to get some paint on my alebrijes.
Lunch break today was at Conzatti. When we arrived the staff was just starting to arrange their altar for Dia de los Muertos.
By the time we were done dining they had got this far on the altar.
Back in class this afternoon I just kept painting.
Right outside our workshop door the Holiday Inn staff began to decorate for Dia.
I decided to actually stop working today at 5:00 p.m. This gave me an opportunity to go to the place we call The Clubhouse for drinks with my art buddies.
Some of us walked down the Alcala to the zocalo where we had dinner.
