Description

Known for her bold self-portraits, her exploration of Mexican culture and, of course, her powerful brow, Frida Kahlo aimed to spark dialogue through her art. Her paintings often told stories of self-reflection, examined traditional gender roles and indicted societal standards of beauty. Honoring her legacy, this event invites the community to celebrate Frida's work by taking in paintings by local Chicano artists and enjoying Mexican music and food. The event will feature a live Mariachi band, a Frida-themed photo booth and plenty of traditional Mexican antojitos like aguas frescas and churros.
