June 29, 2012 – Viva Frida: From the Blue House to the Catwalk

You are invited to celebrate your inner “Frida” in the Gaultier-inspired or the traditional fashion in a program curated by Rene Yañez

Free Programs include:

  • 6pm – Show featuring designs by Chloe Rose
  • Live music performance by Liliana Herrera
  • 6pm – Mezcal tastings by Wahaka Mezcal: Piazzoni Murals Room
    Wahaka Mezcal will be conducting a taste and will be sharing information about the smoky Mexican-made elixir. Its Traditional line uses 100% organically-farmed espadín agave, and includes Joven Espadín and Reposado con Gusano. The Signature line features wild agave varieties and includes Joven Madre Cuishe, Joven Tobalá, and the Joven Ensamble, a blend of Madre Cuishe (25%), Tobalá (25%) and Espadín (50%).
  • 7pm – Film Screening: Pedro Almodovar’s Kika
    Elaborate satire about murder, sex and the media. A young television hostess tracks a suspected serial killer in an effort to get good footage for her shock show. Instead she stumbles into a web of sex, violence, and absurdity. Costumes by Jean Paul Gaultier.
