Bare Hands


Bare Hands Gallery, Inc.

Bare Hands, Inc. is a community-supported, non-profit arts organization dedicated to cultivating creativity and innovation in metro Birmingham and the surrounding region by creating opportunities and favorable environments in which artists and audiences play an active role in the creative process and cultural dialogues.


This mission is addressed through our Día de los Muertos festival, an annual joyful remembrance of lost loved ones which began in 2003, inspired by Mexico’s sacred Day of the Dead tradition, the tradition of Decoration Day in the Southern United States, New Orleans Jazz Funeral Processions and Birmingham’s own history and community. Since 2010, we have furthered this mission through the Bare Hands Art Club, a partnership with the local artistic community and the YWCA of Central Alabama that encourages creative expression in children moving from homelessness to transitional housing.

Bare Hands, Inc. works with and for the community to create meaningful and memorable experiences – there are many ways to get involved and we hope you will join us!
