Exhibitions at the Buddy Holly Center: Fine Arts Gallery
Celebración is an annual exhibition of artwork that explores the history and meaning behind the Mexican holiday, Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. This exhibit includes works from local, regional and national artists. Artists are challenged to create an expression of their interpretation of Día de los Muertos, by honoring departed ancestors, friends and family. Artists are not limited by choice of media or content, but are asked to focus on the unified theme of Mexico’s centuries-old ritual of commemorating the death of a loved one. This exhibit will run through November 10, 2019.
