Opening Reception: 19th Annual El Corazon Exhibition
February 2, 2013
to 9 PM
521 E. Lawther Drive , Dallas, TX
The Bath House Cultural Center presents the 19th Annual El Corazón exhibition, a show that features diverse creations inspired by the heart (El Corazón), an important symbol in Mexican and Latin American art, and a significant theme in western culture.
As it approaches two decades of existence, this popular exhibition continues to generate great public interest and excitement among local and regional artists. Jose Vargas, a visual artist and independent exhibition curator from Dallas, got inspired to organize the exhibition upon seeing a colorful picture of a heart pierced by an arrow, which, together with the number 27 and the words “El Corazón,” were printed on one of the cards of the Mexican board game, Lotería. Mr. Vargas soon found other artists who were also fascinated by the aesthetics and symbolism of the heart, and he presented their artwork in the first El Corazon exhibition in 1993 with immense success. The show soon became an annual tradition and a very popular event for the Bath House Cultural Center and for the vast number of regional artists who have participated in this passionate and delightfully eclectic art show throughout the years.
