Night of 1,000 Fridas Hub Locations

On January 25, 2019, artists and amateurs around the world will place depictions of Frida Kahlo out in public, or in places free and accessible to the public, to celebrate Night of 1,000 Fridas.

Events are popping up around the country. Plans and details are being formed daily, and I’ll do my best to keep this page updated.

This event is for everyone worldwide. You don’t need to be close to one of the below locations to participate, but these hubs will be fun gathering spots. To find out more about the project, visit this page. Are you organizing an event that should be added? If so, contact me.
