LUBBOCK, Texas (PRESS RELEASE) — The following is a press release from The Buddy Holly Center:
The Buddy Holly Center invites the community to participate in Lubbock’s First Friday Art Trail on Friday, October 1, 2021. Celebración will be on display through November 14, 2021 in the Fine Arts Gallery. This annual exhibition 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. Artwork is not limited by choice of media, but focuses on the unified theme of Mexico’s centuries-old ritual of commemorating the death of a loved one.
