Dead End mini print exhibition 

 In the spirit of artist José Guadalupe Posada's critical and satirical style, which he famously used to comment on social and political issues of his time, we invite artists to create prints that explore the theme of  bad weather  in conjunction with the conventional themes and imagery associated with el Dia de Los Muertos.

This call for art is open to artists working on any traditional printmaking medium. We encourage submissions that are thought-provoking, visually engaging, and contribute to the exploration of bad weather and climate change through the lens of el Dia de Los Muertos.

This exhibition is organized and arranged by printmakers Alynn Guerra and Rebecca Rodriguez. Our goal is to build connections and engage with other printmakers as we commemorate the Day of the Dead in a less conventional manner.

We are focused on exhibiting the evocative capacity of graphic imagery in printmaking.

Alongside each print, a QR code will be displayed, allowing for direct payment to the artist, we won't be taking any percentage from sales

The exhibition will take place at our printmaking studio/gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan during the Day of the Dead weekend.
