Exhibition: Cultural Celebrations

Dates: May 6, 2023 to June 10, 2023

Bonita Museum & Cultural Center

Bonita, CA 91902

And CAC Virtual Gallery

Open to all current California Art Club members of the following chapters; Kern County, Malibu/Ventura, Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County, Palm Springs Desert, San Gabriel/Pomona Valley, and the Inland Empire.

It is at the very heart of human nature to gather together to celebrate our traditions, which may vary culture to culture, but our traditions bind us to our predecessors.

For this exhibition we ask artists to submit work that showcase either their personal cultural celebrations, or celebrations that they have had the opportunity to witness.

Works could feature celebrations from July 4th, to the Yi Peng Lantern Festival, to the Holi Festival of Color, to Dia de los Muertos, to Pride Festivals, to Oktoberfest, to Mardi Gras, to Moon Festival, to the Gathering of First Nations, etc.

Artwork could also explore the cultural influences behind clothing, architecture, landscaping, food, etc.

All genres of work will be considered. Get creative!
