(Press Release)

The Buddy Holly Center announces the opening of its annual exhibition Celebracion, Friday, Oct. 5, 2018. This open invitational exhibition of artwork 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 (Nov. 1 & 2) 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 Nov. 1 and 2, and are a time of remembrance, reunion and feasting. Artwork is showcased through a variety of media and focuses on the unified theme of Mexico’s centuries-old ritual of commemorating the death of a loved one.

Celebracion will be on display Oct. 5 through Nov. 18, 2018, in the Fine Arts Gallery. The Buddy Holly Center is located at 1801 Crickets Ave. Museum hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. for more information, please visit www.buddhollycenter.org.
