Panel discussion: ‘Espiritu de Frida,’ Trailblazers, Pioneers and Innovators of Latin American Art

Frida Kahlo’s work has left a lasting impression on the work of many women in Latin American art. Join the Heard as we discuss the espiritu de Frida (spirit of Frida) with moderator Betsy Fahlman, right, an Arizona State University art history professor. The conversation will include:

  • Gabriela Munoz, an artist and educator and the newly selected artist programs manager at the Arizona Commission on the Arts.
  • Julie Sasse, chief curator, curator of modern and Contemporary art and curator of Latin American art at the Tucson Museum of Art.
  • Annie Lopez, a member of the Phoenix art scene since 1982 who has consistently created new bodies of narrative work exploring a variety of subjects. Her current work includes dresses made of cyanotype prints on tamale wrapper paper.

And don’t forget to visit our two exhibits focusing on the life of Kahlo, the famed 20th century Mexican painter: Frida Kahlo–Her Photos, on view through Feb. 8, and Las Favoritas de Frida: Selections from the Heard Collection, on view through Sept. 25.
