Night is falling earlier, the air is cooling and Halloweeny-season is nigh, and it is that time of year for the Day of the Dead exhibit at the Bath House Cultural Center. The exhibit opens this Sunday with a reception from 5-7 p.m., and it will run through Nov. 8. Every year, the Day of the Dead Exhibit at the Bath House seems to get better. The gallery walls are increasingly colorful and rich with skeletons and specters, sometimes smiling or dancing and sometimes just spooky. It’s a celebration of the dead and death and what happens afterward — a tough concept for me to grasp, honestly, as I tend to be very saddened by death (weird, I know). But that’s what I love about Day of the Dead and the festivities surrounding it — it challenges what we think we know about the unknown.
Lots of local artists participating in this show, see the list here.
