October 15-November 12, 2016

Reception: Sunday, October 16 (5-7 PM)

In addition to celebrating the 30th anniversary of its popular Día de los Muertos exhibition in 2016, the Bath House Cultural Center is also commemorating 35 years of fostering and presenting visual and performing art programs in Dallas. In response to these significant milestones, the 65 artists participating in the Dia de los Muertos: Long Live the Artists!exhibition created works of art that pay tribute to famous and yet-to-be-famous artists who have passed on, whose legacy and inspiration still resonate vividly in the artistic community and in the heart of the artists creating the pieces for the show.

To illustrate the variety of art forms that are presented throughout the year in the art galleries and on the theater stage of the Bath House Cultural Center, the Dia de los Muertos exhibition showcases pieces that honor artist from the visual, performing, and literary art world. The merging of artist memorials and the Mexican celebration of the Dia de los Muertos creates a fascinating collection of artworks that are inspired by creative and transcendental individuals such as Frida Kahlo, Vincent Van Gogh, Salvador Dalí, Prince, David Bowie, Juan Gabriel, Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allan Poe, and the late actress, author and art advocate, Ronnie Claire Edwards, among many other artists.

The exhibition features artwork by local, national, and international artists, including: Lauren Alexander, Robin Bachtler Cushman, Rita Barnard, Lorna Beasley, Laura Beikman, Kymberli Black, Angie Bolling, Bernard Bortnick, Amy Branch-Lambert, Catrina Briscoe, Kim Carothers, Dwayne Carter, A.
