Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

Frida Kahlo Exhibit

Over 700 people visited Frida while she was here!  This includes visits from students at Lone Star Elementary School and Oak Run Middle School, who all got a chance to try their hand at Frida-like art projects.  Adult participants got to create self-portraits and still-life paintings.  Examples of the art projects can be seen below.

We could never have hosted this exhibit without the help of these wonderful volunteers, who generously provided time, talent, and materials:

Mabel Brown

Martha Estrada

Stella & Inez Olivas

Angelina Pliego

Olga Reiche

Jan Waguespack
