Exhibitions at the Buddy Holly Center:
Fine Arts Gallery
Celebración: This exhibition is on display starting Oct 6 until Nov 12, 2017.  Celebración is an annual exhibit that explores the history and meaning behind the Mexican holiday, Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Día de los Muertos blends the Catholic traditions of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day (November 1st & 2nd) with pre-Columbian concepts of death that have been a part of Mexican society since Aztec times.  Modern traditional Día de los Muertos festivities take place on November 1st and 2nd, and are a time of remembrance, reunion and feasting. Artists are not limited by choice of media, but are asked to focus on the unified theme of Mexico’s centuries-old ritual of commemorating the death of a loved one.
