El Corazón exhibition has been one of the most popular art events at the Bath House Cultural Center since the show was first presented in 1993. Every year, this Dallas exhibition presents over sixty regional, national and international artists with pieces that explore multiple interpretations of the human heart (El Corazón), an important and stimulating symbol in art.
The Bath House is celebrating the musical arts in 2018 by hosting a music festival (Lake-a-Palooza!) and unveiling two new music-themed mural paintings inside the building’s lake level later this year. In line with the celebration, Jose Vargas, the Curator of the show, also suggested a theme of music for this year’s El Corazón exhibition. He states that: “When it comes to combining the symbol of the heart and the concept of music, the possibilities are endless.” Music, however, is not the only concept explored by the participating artists, making this show as diverse and engaging as it has always been.
The exhibition features art by Andres Aceves, Mirtha Aertker, Pablo Azar, Rita Barnard, Jessica Bell, Kimberly Bradshaw Meadows, Kristina Carbrey, Sara Cardona, Kim Carothers, Andrea Cook, Sharon Covington, Mariana De Yta , Jenna Deslaurier, Glenn Downing, Martha Francis, Charlene Goldman, Brandy González, Rebecca Guy, Justin Higgs, Jessica Hills, Chad Hines, Marcela Kourkova, MaryEllen Lacy, Cindy Lemmon, M3AT, Jackie MacLelland, Marian Maldonado-Pagán, Samuel Chuck McCarter, Sarah McDaniel , Margo Miller, Yamel Molerio, Karla Mora Mora, Crystal Murley, Sharon O’Callaghan Shero, Caroline Ometz, Julie Pearson, Maia Pizarro, Michelle Purvis, Christopher Rahmeh, Ann Ranson, Ellen Ray, Gail Roberts, Rene Rocha, Lesley Rucker, Joe Sarate, Teresa Shields, Mary Southall, Pam Stern, Christine Stoddard, Wendy Tigchelaar, Mary Ann Turner, Jose Vargas, Lisa Vollrath, Joan Wheeler, ME Wilcox, Lorena Williams, and Kelly Witte.
