5th Annual Beautiful Souls Coffin Show 
"Metaphysical Exaltation" 
Opening Monday NOVEMBER 2ND, 2015

LOCATION: Cultura in Pilsen : 1900 South Carpenter St. Chicago, IL 60608
(FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE)

"Metaphysical Exaltation" is a state of being and experiencing our world when the mind, body, and soul, are connected. In the midst of creating we experience a type of euphoric bliss and often feel peace within ourselves. The 50 mini coffins are a way to connect with our loved ones and an expression of ourselves. This exhibition aims to celebrate the sacred that is within and honor the divine in those who have inspired us or to whom we have lost to the nature of our world. This event is a multicultural fusion of the Mexican holiday, Dia de Los Muertos/Day of the Dead and the American holiday of Halloween by creating mini altars in the form of precious coffins.
