Two sisters want you to have a taste of the afterlife with their brand new "Dreams of the Dead" art exhibit. The art features hand crafted skeletons doing everyday things--imagining where souls go after they pass. 

The sisters used to make jewelry, but they now hand make ornaments, boxes, and earrings. They say creating this art has been a way to look at death in a different way.

"We're not sure if they're our dreams, the dreams of the dead, or both, but it's a positive take on Day of the Dead, and we're really having fun with it," said Melody Prentice.

The exhibit is at DeGrazia Little Gallery-- in the foothills. It starts Saturday March 25, 2017 and goes until April 7, 2017.

It's open from 10 a-m to 4 p-m daily, and it's free to go!
