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!
