LAURIE BETH ZUCKERMAN'S DIA DE LOS MUERTOS ALTAR IN 2011 BEST CURATED EXHIBIT IN DENVER'S SANTA FE ARTS DISTRICT

Laurie Beth Zuckerman's "Madre Dolorosa" DOD altar installation detail 2011

Laurie Beth Zuckerman's Day of the Dead altar installation, "Madre Dolorosa" was featured in Denver's Studio 12 Gallery's 2011 Diá de los Muertos exhibition. The exhibit, hosted by owner/artist, Sean Brown, won the Best of 2011's Santa Fe Arts District Award for Best Curated Exhibition by Denver artist, Carlos Frésquez.

I was in great company in this show. My fellow guest artists were: Jerry Vigil, Rob Yancey, George Rivera, Amber Lovelace, Fonda McDonough. My altar, "Devil May Care" was shown in Studio 12's second annual Diá de los Muertos exhibition in 2010. I am looking forward to exhibiting a new altar for this year's fourth annual Diá de los Muertos exhibition at Studio 12. I've been working on it since the beginning of the year.

Studio 12 Gallery was runner-up for the Best Gallery Award for 2011, along with the winner CORE New Art Space, Vertigo Art Space, and CHAC Gallery. You can view all the 2011 nominees at the Art District on Santa Fe website.

You can find more images of my DOD altar in my Flickr portfolio.

This altar is so moving, I could look at it for hours. I think it's your use of the childrens shoes and photos. Beautiful.

Congratulations...........
