I’m launching a large-scale street art project called Night of 1,000 Fridas, and I’d like you to sign up and take part!
Together, I hope we can place 1,000 depictions of Frida Kahlo in public spaces. You can take part from anywhere and your contribution can be visual art, a performance, or maybe something I haven’t thought of yet. Just place your art out in public, or perform it in public, on January 25, 2019 and incorporate the hashtag “#1KFridas.”
So far, pledged contributors include award winning artists and musicians, kids, former professional athletes, an Olympian, and a mayor. More info: www.theodorecarter.com/frida
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.
You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
