During Hwy62 Arttours October 31 and November 1 a shrine will be set up at Allen and Mita Barter’s Twentynine Palms studio dedicated to dead artists. One of the first art forms, the building of shrines with the placement of objects in assemblage create meaning that is beyond words. Allen and Mita spent Dias de los Muertos in San Miguel de Allende last year and want to share some of that experience. Following in the traditions of Day of the Dead this shrine will be personal, communal, political, spiritual, and interactive; guests are encouraged to bring images of a dead artist they wish to honor to as well as offerings such as flowers, food, candles, incense.
