Homenaje a Frida Kahlo Galeria de la Raza

Galeria de la Raza located in San Francisco's Mission District presented the exhibition Homenaje a Frida Kahlo in November 2, 1978 - January 12, 1979. Images from the exhibition including a mural by Michael V Rios exhibition poster by artist Rupert Garcia both featuring Kahlo can be viewed online. Galeria de la Raza is under the Executive Direction of Carolina Ponce de Leon who is one of the most inspirational women I met in my post as Director of Arts & Business Partnerships at Business Arts Council in San Francisco.
