​​​Deadline to submit is September 10, 2017 / No Submission Fee


San Juan Capistrano Library

October 1, 2017 through November 4, 2017

Reception November 4, 2017


This call for art is open to poets, visual artists, digital artists, photographers and mini altar artists located in Southern California.  If you wish to participate and live out of state, Skyepoet is not responsible for any shipping costs to or from the exhibit.  The San Juan Capistrano Library awarded artist Skye Amber Sweet with a solo exhibit.  Unfortunately the pieces she had created sold before she could show them.  

The library has twenty-eight walls measuring 47 inches across housing an amazing amount of space for your art works.  There is also entry space for larger mural sized pieces available and four easels.  All pieces submitted must clearly fit into the celebration of the Day of the Dead but can be in any artistic expression. Skye Amber Sweet; local Los Angeles Art Mentor, Artist and Muralist is curating the exhibit and will be selecting the best pieces to fit the call. She is looking to display pieces by artists that think outside the box but that are within the theme guidelines.  Any artworks that do not clearly fit the theme will not be considered.  

We are also looking for poets to write Day of the Dead poetry to frame and hang as well as recite during the opening reception.  Again all poetry must fit into the theme and be clear or it will not be accepted.  Please email your poetry submissions directly to skye@skyepoet.com with the subject line: Skyepoet: Art and Poetry DOTD.


Call for art ends September 10, 2017 and Artists will be announced September 11th.  We look forward to participating in the celebration of life and cannot wait to see what you come up with! Send questions regarding this submission to skye@skyepoet.com​​​
