Mexic-Arte Museum is excited to announce the #ShowUsYourFrida social media challenge in conjunction with the Frida and Diego: A Smile in the Middle of the Wayexhibit.
 
The Museum invites you to imagine what Frida Kahlo would look like today if she were still alive. Tattoos? Piercings? Dyed hair? It’s up to you! Once you have an image in mind, create an image and show us your Frida. Read below for more details.
