Buddy Holly Center to host October First Friday Art Trail

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Buddy Holly Center invites the community to participate in Lubbock’s First Friday Art Trail on Friday, October 5, 2018.

Exhibitions at the Buddy Holly Center Fine Arts Gallery
Celebración will be on display through November 18, 2018 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 focus on the unified theme of Mexico’s centuries-old ritual of commemorating the death of a loved one.

First Friday Art Trail is a program of LHUCA (the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts). Held on the first Friday of every month in venues around the city, galleries, restaurants and businesses open FREE of charge to display local and regional visual and performing art. A free trolley service to and from venues will be offered in the downtown area. The First Friday Art Trail works to promote art and outreach within the community of Lubbock by providing an opportunity to enjoy fine art and entertainment.
