Frida Kahlo portraits

Frida Kahlo used material culture to construct her identity — and material culture made her an icon in return.
Join Alpine Arts & Vail Public Library in making your very own Self Portraits like Frida did. Each student would bring in a photo (or we can help you print one) to use in the frame and put images around that they identify with. This event is open to Teens & Adults, make sure to RSVP to Sandy at email@example.com or to 970-479-2331 as we have limited space.
