We celebrate our September First Friday with Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera before the exhibition ends Sept. 4!
Bring your friends and family out to see the Heard Museum’s galleries with free general admission* and enjoy activities, music, food and more in the Central Courtyard.
Ken Duncan Jr. (Apache/Arikara/Hidatsa) will lead salsa dancing at 7:30 p.m. in the Steele Auditorium. He will teach basic dance steps and MC a night of great music.
Ken Duncan Jr. has been dancing salsa nearly 10 years. His serious interest began with taking a Latin dance class at Arizona State University. He was a member of the ASU dance team and competed at collegiate dance competitions. He has placed in local salsa and bachata competitions since then.
Ken is from the Apache tribe in Arizona and the Arikara & Hidatsa tribes from North Dakota. He also dances grass dance at powwows and has recently returned to Native hoop dancing. Ken believes that dance is healthy to the soul no matter where it is from.
Activities for all ages will be held in the Sandra Day O’Connor Gallery as well as in the Steele Auditorium and include:
From 6 to 8:30 p.m. the Café and Cantina will be open for drinks and food. The Heard Museum Books & More will have your favorite Frida memorabilia. The Heard Museum Shop will showcase fine art inspired by the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibition.
