“Really, I do not know whether my paintings are surrealist or not, but I do know that they are the frankest expression of myself.” ― Frida Kahlo
Cinco de Mayo will be celebrated this Sunday, May 5th. Author Isabel Bueno of National Geographic said of the holiday: “For Mexicans…as well as Mexican-American in the United Sates, it has become a complex symbol of Mexican culture, resilience, and character.” To honor this Mexican heritage, this week we focus on female artists whose works inspired activism, self reflection, and, like the holiday, celebrated these Mexican women’s own “culture, resilience, and character.”
