Frida's Mustache!

It is amazing how art impacts people!  Different works reach different people in different ways at different times.  Madonna was recently quoted in Harper's Bazaar concerning an inspirational work of art to her & why.

"I would pull myself together and look at a postcard of Frida Kahlo taped to my wall, and the sight of her mustache consoled me," she tells the magazine. "Because she was an artist who didn't care what people thought. I admired her. She was daring. People gave her a hard time. Life gave her a hard time. If she could do it, then so could I."

We should do our best to share the work & stories of artists!  Sometimes it is easy to get in the day in day out of doing media instruction...and forget the heart of art.  Someone must have shared with Madonna back in the day!!!
