Dallas artist and exhibition curator, Jose Vargas, is seeking art entries for the Lucha Libre art exhibition. The show will be presented at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center from January 11, 2020 to February 14, 2020.

The central theme of the exhibition is Luchadores (Mexican Wrestlers). The term Lucha Libre translates to: Free Fight, or Fight Freestyle. In Mexico, the term is used for professional wrestling. Most Luchadores/Luchadoras wear colorful masks. Typically, the wrestling match involves the técnicos (good guys) vs. the rudos (bad guys).

The artwork created for this exhibition must relate to Lucha Libre in one form or another. Artwork should depict wrestlers, Mexican wrestlers, Luchadores or Luchadoras. Artists are encouraged to create unique works of art and ideas as well as innovative techniques that use great imagination while having fun in the process.

The Oak Cliff Cultural Center is a division of the City of Dallas’ Office of Arts and Culture.
