Casa de Arte rings down the curtain with a Day of the Dead show
Traditionally, El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) honors ancestors who have gone before. Allentown’s seasonal gallery Casa de Arte has always used this opportunity to highlight dead artists with artworks by them and in their honor. This time, Casa de Arte announced that its Day of the Dead exhibition focuses on the gallery itself, which will be closed down after this show. It’s a bit macabre, but appropriately so. Gallery-goers can expect to see Day of the Dead altars by Casa’s founding artists, Mara Odette and Rick Williams, as well as other artists. All works will be available for sale at the exhibition, which runs November 3–6, with an opening reception on November 3 (Allentown’s First Friday), 6–10 p.m.
