Through these diverse access points, we welcome the Bay Area community and beyond to engage in meaningful and inspiring narratives.

Local Voices: Celebrating Frida Kahlo, hosted by Rio Yañez

This eight-episode podcast features local artists influenced and inspired by the art and life of the artist Frida Kahlo. In this season, we pay tribute to the legacy of artist and curator René Yañez, who in the 1970s brought the first Frida Kahlo exhibition on the West Coast to San Francisco. His son, the artist Rio Yañez, will introduce us to Bay Area artists from diverse disciplinary backgrounds who will share their distinctive perspectives. We will explore the long-lasting impact of Frida Kahlo and celebrate the exhibition Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can be Deceiving at the de Young museum.
