July 6, 1907:  Artist Frida Kahlo Born
On this day in 1907, female painter and wife of fellow Mexican artist Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, was born in Mexico City in her famous Blue House.  Known primarily for her striking surrealist self-portraits, Frida was also an avid political activist. The Blue House (La Casa Azul) in which she was born and returned to in her last years is now a museum dedicated to her life.
A collection of 6,500 of Frida Kahlo’s personal photographs were opened to the public for the first time in 2007 and were placed on display at Artisphere in Arlington, VA earlier this year.  If you didn’t get a chance to see the exhibit, you can view some of the photos here, and read a Q&A of curator and photographer Pablo Ortiz Monasterio about putting together the exhibition.
