What better way to interrupt our current political nightmare—with attacks on science, immigrant “others,” and the dream of a just democracy— than a public art show inspired by revolutionary Mexican painter Frida Kahlo? Her famous manifesto claiming to paint not the surreal, but her own reality finds expression in multi-form pieces curated by Buena Park’s Community Affairs Fine Arts Division (who knew?). Sixteen interpreters of dream and reality insist on drawing, painting, collaging, photographing and assembling toward what passes for a perhaps more honest assessment of the truth, in rich colors, clever constructions and vivid imaginings, each a tribute to Frida.
