Day of the Dead in New York Mills

By Dave Machacek

ArtOrg was invited by the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center to provide the foundation for a community Day of the Dead festival in that city. We displayed the 104-foot-long print from our 2006 project, and most of the prints from the 2009 project that was done in Fargo for the Plains Art Museum. A special addition were gallery talks by Xavier Tavera, and the construction of two new panels for his ofrenda, first seen at the Northfield community celebration in 2006. The two new panels were added to the existing four panels and represented inspirations from the heritage of the specific Latino communities near New York Mills.
