Local Artist Showcase Inspired by Frida Kahlo on Display
It seems that the Sun City's love for Frida Kahlo is constantly growing, with events, restaurants and themed shows inspired by the artist popping up throughout the city year-round and it kicks off with Viva La Frida!
Frida Kahlo's art has traveled around the world, but her personal story speaks for itself about the woman who created surreal experiences, full of color and excitement. As a child, Frida was diagnosed with polio, an illness that left her legs very weak, and as a teenager, she was involved in a train accident, which caused permanent injuries to her spine, ribs, neck and pelvis. But her talent and the love that she had for life led her through a path where art became her escape from reality and a filter to take away the pain that she transformed into canvas.
The downtown district will set the ambience at El Paso's Finest 314 N. Mesa, Friday, February 22nd from 5pm-10pm, for this free, all-ages exhibition. Supporting LOCAL artist and show that El Paso has so MUCH to share!
