ALL ART MUST DIRECTLY RELATE TO THE CASA BONITA RESTAURANT IN LAKEWOOD, COLORADO!

The Casa Bonita Art Show -   Mi Casa es Su Casa

NEXT Gallery is thrilled to host the 5th Annual Casa Bonita Art Show – Mi Casa es Su Casa. 

Casa Bonita is a 52,000 sq-ft restaurant in Lakewood, Colorado on West Colfax Avenue (deemed “the longest, wickedest street in America”). The restaurant offers up a 3-story waterfall, gunfights, gorilla chases, puppet shows, a haunted cave and much, much more.

The restaurant, which opened its doors in 1974, was recently saved from permanent closure. A community led campaign was a major player in the process. The “Mi Casa es Su Casa” show (“My House is Your House”) celebrates Casa Bonita as an important part of our collective history. It truly is our house. We are looking for art that tells the tale of Casa Bonita. What makes Casa Bonita part of our narrative? The fables, the facts, the fictions, the legends. Our goal is to create a visual “snapshot” of the Casa Bonita experience. This is a national juried call, and is open to artwork in all mediums. Cash prizes will be awarded – Best in show: $250, Second Place: $100, Third Place: $50, People’s Choice: $50
