As the early-90s poets Boyz II Men so helpfully remind, its hard to say goodbye to yesterday. But like most things, its easier with food. The Mexican tradition of Día de los Muertos, a centuries-old celebration of honoring and remembering ancestors, makes sure to include the deads favorite food items, alongside memorial altars decorated with marigolds, sugar skulls, photos and favorite items of the dearly departed. The Día de los Muertos exhibition at the Bath House Cultural Center features the works of 59 artists in both traditional Day of the Dead art and more contemporary ponderings on the theme of death and things that have passed on. The show is open through November 12 at 521 E. Lawther Drive from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Call 214-670-8749 or visit bathhousecultural.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 12-6 p.m. Starts: Oct. 15. Continues through Nov. 12, 2011
