Join us for an early evening with the fabulous 505 Fridas! Come meet and greet these beautiful, creative women, as we present: First Friday Floral Fascinations with the 505 Fridas, part of the 1st Friday Downtown ABQ ArtWalk, at the OT Circus, Friday April 6 from 5:30-7:30pm.
The 505 Fridas are a group of Albuquerque artists inspired by the life and art of Frida Kahlo, whose mission is “to celebrate culture with irreverent passion and lift up creative expression by highlighting the joy and mystery of the arts specific to our region, we honor the memory of Frida Kahlo, both butterfly and tiger, Mistress and Madame. With strength, passion, daring, creativity, love and intelligence, she raised the respect of her home through art. She boldly challenged social norms and normal thought in all she projected. She explored and revealed her imperfection to reframe it as perfect human beauty. As kindred Soul Sisters, we aspire to metaphorically conjure the spirit of Frida Kahlo to honor the unique art, artists, culture, history and pride of our beloved city, Albuquerque, New Mexico.”
