Día de los Muertos: The Liveliest of Celebrations
Saturday, September 12, 2015
Show dates: October 10-November 14, 2015
Opening reception: Sunday, Oct. 11, 2015 (5-7 PM)
The Bath House Cultural Center will present the 29th Annual Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) art exhibition, October 10-November 14, 2015. This show will feature local, regional, and international artists working in traditional and contemporary styles to celebrate, explore, and honor people, things and ideas that have “passed on.”
This year, the theme of the show is FESTIVITY.
Entries submitted for the Dia de los Muertos: The Liveliest of Celebrations exhibition must convey a sense of joy, celebration, cheer, and overall festivity. The celebratory aspects commonly associated with the tradition of the Day of the Dead will be the inspiration for the pieces of art selected for this show. Although we understand that some of the works of art (particularly the altars) may include solemn themes, we recommend that artists keep the idea of festivity in mind while creating and selecting their entries.
