Frida Kahlo

Roxanne Amico reminded me that Frida Kahlo’s birthday was in early July.  Her birth certificate lists her actual birth date as July 6, 1907;  she herself told people she was born July 7, 1910, coinciding with the birth of modern Mexico in the revolution.

Here are some links that give a visual and audio appreciation of the life and work of Frida Kahlo:
