July is Frida’s Birthday month! She would have been 110 years old this July 6th! Imagine that!
Every year we celebrate Frida in different exciting ways! Sometimes it is an exhibition, a call to artists or just a fun Fiesta! This first Sunday of July, we will be having a special celebration at the downtown Phoenix Public Library featuring kids books, kids art activities and the Art Mercado by the Phoenix Fridas! It is too hot outside with this triple digits heat, so why not come inside the cool library and curl up with a book about our heroine or shop for something special handmade by the Phoenix Fridas….. Bring all the family including the kids! It’s free!
The Phoenix Fridas will be reading their favorite books, quotes and diary passages by Frida herself! There are so many awesome children’s books about Frida! We will also share a book about Diego so the boys can learn how Diego was an Artist ever since he was a child!
The big surprise on Sunday is that we will be releasing our very own Phoenix Fridas Coloring Book!
We are so excited to share our very special original drawings by each of the Phoenix Fridas, and there are 9 of us! This has been a project of love! We have been talking about it, planning, designing it for the past 2 years. Finally our Vero Frida took the project head on and is it being printed as we speak. They will be for sale on Sunday and you can get them autographed by the Phoenix Fridas for $15.00. What a great way to support our work as artists and entertain the whole family!
So we look forward to seeing you there! Wear something Frida inspired and come honor her with us! See you at the Library…
