The Bath House Cultural Center will present the 30th Annual Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) art exhibition, October 15-November 12, 2016. This show features local, regional, and international artists working in traditional and contemporary styles to celebrate, explore, and honor people, things and ideas that have “passed on.”

The theme for this year is A TRIBUTE TO ARTISTS.

In 2016, the Bath House Cultural Center will be commemorating 35 years of creating and presenting visual and performing art programs.  This year also marks the 30th Annivesary of the center’s annual Día de los Muertos exhibition.  To celebrate these significant milestones, we are requesting art entries that honor artists of all disciplines (visual, theater, music, literary, etc.).  The “Día de los Muertos: Long Live the Artists” exhibition will give artists a chance to create artwork that pays tribute to famous and yet-to-be-famous artists who have passed on, whose legacy and inspiration still resonates vividly in the artistic community and in the heart of the artists creating the pieces for the show.
