ARTgrove VOL. 1: “Happy Birthday Frida”
In honor of International Mexican Artist Frida Kahlo – July 10, 2021
ARTgrove Vol 1 was held at District 56 in the City of Elk Grove to bring cultural heritage to the community. We opened up our event to artists who created their version of our festival’s theme. Sharing their visual stories of International Mexican Artist Frida Kahlo inspired imagery in a museum style viewing of thirteen 8′ x 8 murals. Along with the exhibit, there were cultural vendors, artists painting live, and cultural food trucks. This was the first of its kind festival brought to the City of Elk Grove to share our culture, inspire the community to appreciate the cultural arts. This event was also sponsored by the City of Elk Grove, Elk Grove Arts Commission, DC 16 STARS Jattf, Sojourn Truth Museum, Washington Neighborhood Center, KTI Media 360, PinkStreetART and Wes Kos Images.
