Shrine to Lost Love


Having spent a large part of my life teaching and making art in Texas, I use a lot of Hispanic references in my art. For many any years I entered the Dia De Los Muertos Exhibit at the Bathhouse Cultural Center in Dallas.

One year I created a tribute to my beloved grandmother another year it was an alter to musicians that had died. This shrine is based not on a person that has died but on the memory of a lost love.

If you notice the electric cord, it can be plugged in and has a red light in the back.

To find out more information on Day of the Dead follow this link I found on google:
