Frida Art Competition

Opera Cultura is putting out a call for art inspired by Frida Kahlo’s life and works! Frida Kahlo was an iconic Mexican painter and revolutionary. Art selected may be incorporated into Opera Cultura’s production of the opera Frida based on her life (May 8-10, 2020 in San Jose). 

Submissions will be judged by local professional artist Elba Raquel, Artistic Producer & Stage Director Alexa Anderson, and two  public online votes. The public online votes will be chosen by the piece of art with the most likes on Opera Cultura’s Facebook and Instagram pages. Opera Cultura will upload the submissions to these social media pages as they are received. 

PLEASE SUBMIT: Photographs/digital copies of 1-3 pieces of Frida-inspired visual art. Traditional mediums and art inspired by Frida’s early life (before she was a painter) are encouraged.

SEND TO: alexandra@operacultura.org

DEADLINE: April 1, 2020

PRIZE: One winner will be awarded a $500 cash prize.
