When Miriam asked me to base an event on Frida Kahlo’s, “What the Water Told Me,” I have to admit my first thought was, “How in the world can I made a wedding or any event out of a painting that illustrates Frida’s personal tragedies?” With a good deal of brain storming, I had it: a fundraiser for the Neuropathy Action Foundation. It is suspected that Frida also had spina bifida in addition to the injuries sustained from a horrible accident and a bout with polio. All of those physical tragedies left Frida in horrible pain and neuropathy. This event celebrates Frida Kahlo as well as her culture. My idea for the sugar skulls pictured is that celebrities and well known personalities would decorate sugar skulls to be auctioned off.
