The thousands of artworks at SFMOMA offer countless opportunities to look closely and think deeply about some of the most amazing artists of our time. To celebrate both the artists on view in the newly expanded museum and the creative communities of the Bay Area, 50 Artists invites local artists and creative professionals to share how icons of modern and contemporary art matter to them. This week, René Yañez reflects on the work of Frida Kahlo.

Yañez is an artist, curator, and producer who lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. A founder and former artistic director of Galería de la Raza, Yañez was one of the first curators to establish Mexico’s Day of the Dead as an important cultural celebration in the United States.
