Break out the party hats and flower crowns, mi gente!

One hundred and thirteen years ago today, on July 6 Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was born at her family home called La Casa Azul. As one of the most recognized figures in art history, Kahlo has a legacy that continues to be embraced even decades after her death. Hailed as a feminist, LGBTQ+, and Chicano icon, the beloved artist continues to live on in the hearts of those who love her.

This truth is particularly apparent this year. Sixty-six years after her death, Kahlo’s friends are celebrating her birthday, so much so that #HappyBirthdayFrida is trending on Twitter with some of the most amazing artwork.
