Photo: A multitude of Fridas converged upon the SFMOMA for the “Pasión por Frida!” event — the culmination of the Frida Kahlo exhibit. Curated by Rene Yanez, “Pasión por Frida!” was an all day event which the modern day Fridas acted on several stages, painted, sand, wandered the gallery searching for Diego.
René Yañez, the Chicano artist who helped introduce the United States to Día de Los Muertos and the work of Frida Kahlo, died Tuesday morning from cancer. He was 75.
