Making Contact: The Art of Healing: Finding Strength Through Frida Kahlo

This week on Making Contact we take a look at one of the most prolific Mexican artists, Frida Kahlo, and how she inspired the Latina artist collective, The Phoenix Fridas.

In Confianza, with Pulso producer Anthony Wallace brings us the story of Thania Betancourt Alcazar. A member of The Phoenix Fridas, Alcazar discovered a lifeline in the art of Frida Kahlo and her artistic message of resilience and empowerment.

Alcazar shares her experience being a Mexican immigrant, her feeling of being an outcast, and finally feeling seen as she saw herself and her culture reflected in the rising popularity of Frida Kahlo and her art in the U.S.
