Our all new summer exhibitions are officially OPEN!

Día de los Muertos 2023

BIMA continues its celebration of its tenth year as a vibrant regional art museum and cultural hub with special public programs and exhibitions woven throughout the entire year. This includes an expanded celebration of Día de los Muertos and an appreciation of Hispanic and Latino/a culture and heritage.

The galleries showcase a spectrum of work by contemporary artists who amplify the themes of Día de los Muertos. From fine art paintings to the tradition of alebrije (brightly colored Mexican folk-art sculptures of mythical creatures) and urban street art, this exhibition features works by artists such as the late Alfredo Arregíun (Seattle), Araceli Cruz (Bainbridge Island), Spanky Loco (Poulsbo), Jake Prendez (Seattle), and more.

All are welcome to share their memories — images and words — of loved ones who have passed by sending an email to education@biartmuseum.org for addition to the ofrenda.

Special thanks to creative organizers Areceli Cruz and Alice Mendoza for their many years of hard work with this annual Community Celebration.
