Frida twittered us and says she’s baking her birthday cake and getting her papers in order. Hopefully the Border Patrol will let her enter Arizona without a hassle in time for her 103rd birthday celebration at Raices Taller 222 Art Gallery & Workshop. Born on July 6, 1907, Frida has requested that in lieu of gifts, you instead support your favorite Latino based nonprofit cooperative contemporary art gallery located in the historic downtown Tucson Warehouse District!
