In conjunction with ABQArtwalk, the OT Circus excitedly presents September 1st Friday with the 505 Fridas!
About the fantastic Fridas:
Inspired by the other Frida tribute organizations in New Mexico including the Phoenix Fridas and the Borderland Fridas, a small group of female Albuquerque artists developed a similar organization for the Northern New Mexico area.
The mission of the 505 Fridas 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.
