Call for Entries, Mil Milagros, Dia de los Muertos Exhibition, K Space Contemporary

Milagros is the Spanish word for “Miracles”. Traditionally Milagros are represented by charms that are made out of pewter or silver to decorate altars, shrines, or sacred objects to be used for protection, healing, or blessing. Milagros used as a name also refers to “Our Lady of Miracles” which is another title given to the Virgin Mother. What kinds of Milagros do you experience in your life? Do you use Milagro charms of your own? Use your creative license and design your own milagros, include them in your own composition or consider what one or even one thousand miracles looks like to you!

Mil Milagros will be displayed at K Space Contemporary October 1st through November 12, 2021.
