Night of 1,000 Fridas

I’m working to get 1,000 depictions of Frida Kahlo out in the public on January 25, 2019 as part of a project called Night of 1,000 Fridas.

So far, I'm up to 270 pledged Fridas and contributors include award winning artists and musicians, kids, former professional athletes, an Olympian, and a mayor. Art will include street poetry, bone assemblage, yarn bombing, and other amazing works.

Participants are invited to create visual art, a performance piece, or maybe something I haven’t thought of yet. On the big night, everyone is encourage to share their work with the pubic and post about it using #1KFridas

While people can contribute from all over, many participants are in the D.C. area, and if I received this grant, I could increase the local focus.

Why Night of 1,000 Fridas?
- Frida was an amazing artist who led an inspiring life.
- To encourage everyone of all ages and abilities to create art.
- To bring art into public spaces.
- To create community.
- To see if we can.
- 1,000 public images of a bisexual Latina communist revolutionary could do the world some good right now.
