On Her 110th Birthday, San Francisco Will Be Celebrating The Artist’s Life And Work In A Big Way

05/26/17 Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez

Fiestas Fridas San Francisco, a project by Cine + Mas San Francisco, is holding their 5th Annual celebration of Frida Kahlo’s life and art as it relates to the city of San Francisco. Proceeds from the event benefit “a LaTEENo Youth Filmmakers project,” according to their Facebook page.

The festival offers art exhibits and events centered around Frida Kahlo and fan art.

Today at Luz de Luna we celebrate a Special Dia de los Muertos in honor of Frida. She passed on July 13th 3 to 6 pm.

“Everyday past the age of 18 was a gift from the universe for Frida. She rose to meet the present with a brush in one hand and life in the other,” reads the festival’s description on Facebook. “We celebrate her legacy by word, spirit and action as she is the mother of all who choose to ‘Carry on and Create!'”

During this celebration, people channel their inner Kahlo with colorful makeup – without forgetting Kahlo’s signature brow.

What fun! #SelFRIDAchallenge, the first official Fiestas Fridas SF Selfie challenge brought us a great gathering of Fridas!
