Art as Ritual 2

Dreamers and Seekers
A Collection Release by Mapache Jewelry
"Talisman and Amulets for the Creatives and Manifestors"
Handmade Jewelry Trunk Show

This Saturday, Mapache Jewelry will release a jewelry collection called “Dreamers and Seekers” accompanied by its own ritual and art display by a selection of young influential Eastside artists. Art as Ritual in Highland Park will invite its attendees to participate and witness the conjuring of creative energy, not only for self-serving purposes, but to reclaim the cultural values of the gentrified corner on York Boulevard. The art accompanying the altar of jewelry will reflect the self-healing and artistic process of each of the influential Eastside artists featured. Each relic points to a story of inequity and survival of residents from across the city. Ritual performers will harness their own awakening through a series of song, spoken-word poetry, and ceremony that aims at provoking its audience to realize its own power; starting with the recognition of its ability to change and transform a corner store gallery into a sanctuary.
