Frida and Diego


The end of a cinderblock row of apartments bears this tribute to Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, echoing their style anew. An artist friend of Frida and Diego who was his assistant in a San Francisco mural project, Emmylou Packard, lived about forty miles away from here in the coastal village of Mendocino for many years. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I have a Frida Kahlo print on my wall and love it. She was an amazing person and I love her art, albeit somewhat disturbing. Fascinating link you gave on Emmylou Packad.
