The central theme of the exhibition is Luchadores (Mexican Wrestlers). The term Lucha Libre translates to: Free Fight, or Fight Freestyle. In Mexico, the term is used for professional wrestling. Most Luchadores/Luchadoras wear colorful masks. Typically, the wrestling match involves the técnicos (good guys) vs. the rudos (bad guys).
The artwork created for this exhibition must relate to Lucha Libre in one form or another. Artwork should depict wrestlers, Mexican wrestlers, Luchadores, or Luchadoras.
