Exhibitions at the Buddy Holly Center:

An Introduction: Images by L David Pike will be on display in the Foyer Gallery through October 16, 2016.  This exhibition serves as an introduction to the artwork of L. David Pike, who got his start in photography at a young age by using his grandmother’s box camera to capture black and white photographs of family members. His craft has progressed to creating images digitally. Pike describes his artwork as “writing with light” that he hopes will illustrate a common denominator of shared emotions.

Celebración will be on display in the Fine Arts Gallery Gallery October 7 through November 13, 2016. This exhibition of artwork, hosted by the Buddy Holly Center, explores the history and meaning behind the Mexican holiday, Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. It will include works by local, regional, and national artists, working in the medium of their choice, and sharing their interpretation of Día de los Muertos. Join us for Lubbock’s citywide observance of Día de los Muertos, at the annual event Procesión, an evening of activities coordinated with the International Cultural Center, Texas Tech University School of Art and the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts. Procesión is a progressive celebration that takes place this year on the evening of Friday, October 28, 2016. The Buddy Holly Center will host a live performance and a make-and-take arts project. These events are free to the public.
