Artist of the Month (October 2011)

Artist of the Month-October 2011

Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1906-July 13, 1954)

Frida Kahlo is perhaps Mexico's most celebrated artist. Most noted for her self-portraits, she is characterized as a naive artist, a "surrealist", and feminist heroine. In honor of Frida Kahlo, artist of the month, Urban Arts Academy after school program is incorporating the rich history and images of Frida Kahlo in its celebration of Dia de Los Muertos. Guest artists Julie and Gustave Boada are collaborating with Urban Arts After School program creating festive skull puppets with paper mache and other popular Day of the Dead imagery and mediums.
