The artwork in this year's Days of the Dead exhibition, The Tree of Life and Death: Días de los Muertos 2013, asks us to consider how natural and spiritual elements play a role in the cycles of life and death. We encourage you to consider this as you write a simple ode to a passed loved one to mark this year's celebration. Share your ode to your passed loved one with OMCA for a chance to receive Days of the Dead giveaways.
In your dedication to a passed loved one be sure to include the hashtag #OdesToThePassed to be eligible to receive Days of the Dead giveaways.
Here’s how to enter:
