I'm excited to announce an upcoming exhibit at the Museum of Latin American Art titled, Frida Kahlo, Her Photos. It presents over two hundred images--both traditional images and more candid shots--from Frida Kahlo’s personal Casa Azul archive in Mexico City and I am so excited that I get to attend the preview tomorrow!
Frida Kahlo has been my muse since I was 18 years old and I feel like I can never know enough about her. I seriously cannot wait to feast my eyes on photos of her that I have never seen before. It is such a privilege to have anything authentic and Frida-related here in Southern California. I wish all of my fellow Frida fanatics could come with me to the preview.
The image of the Frida peg doll above is from a series I'm working on and I couldn't resist sharing a sneak peak of it. Isn't this Frida pequeña so freaking adorable? I just can't with the cuteness.
Oh! MOLAA is also hosting Fridamania: Women’s Day Festival 2014, a day that celebrates the contributions of women to art, movement, and music. A Frida-inspired painting from yours truly (me!) will be featured in their virtual display. Come dressed up in your favorite Frida attire and join the Frida look-alike contest on Sunday, March 16th from 12-4pm.
Just look at all this Frida goodness being offered!
