Although the Day of the Dead may seem macabre to some, it's actually meant to celebrate the lives of the deceased. Similarly, artist Jose Vargas celebrates deceased musicians (and some who are living) in his vibrant paintings. Pair a Vargas exhibition with an exhibit featuring Day of the Dead-influenced art, and you get Twang and Friends, influential musicians depicted in Day of the Dead imagery. Twang and Friends is on view from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays through November 8 at the Bath House Cultural Center, 521 E. Lawther Dr. Admission is free. Call 214-670-8749 or visit bathhousecultural.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 12-6 p.m. Starts: Oct. 24. Continues through Nov. 8, 2008
