Grab your flower crowns, connect your eyebrows, throw on a shawl, and head to the Dallas Museum of Art to be part of a record-setting event. The DMA and the Latino Center for Leadership Development are partnering to set the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people dressed as Frida Kahlo in one location on Thursday, July 6, on what would have been Frida Kahlo’s 110th birthday.
To participate in the record attempt, individuals must provide their own costume, which cannot be shared among multiple individuals, and follow the costume rules set by Guinness World Records listed below:
· A unibrow drawn onto the face joining the eyebrows. This can be done with make-up or by sticking hair.
· Artificial flowers worn in the hair, a minimum of three artificial flowers must be worn.
· A red or pink shawl.
· A flower-printed dress that extends to below the knees on all sides; the dress must not have any slits up the side.
If you do not meet the criteria listed above, you won’t be able to participate in the record attempt per the Guinness World Records’ guidelines. Participants are encouraged to sign up for free online to stay up-to-date on all of the information pertaining to the record attempt: https://dma.ticketleap.com/fridafest/.
The DMA is celebrating the iconic artist from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 6, with $6 off special exhibition tickets for México 1900–1950: Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, José Clemente Orozco, and the Avant-Garde.
Attendees can dine in the DMA Cafe throughout the night and enjoy a menu inspired by México 1900–1950 as well as margaritas on tap. Makeup artists from Reina Rebelde, the cosmetics line inspired by today’s Latinas, will be available to help you embrace the unibrow with complimentary Frida Kahlo–inspired looks. The Dallas Black Dance Theatre will take you on a journey through Frida’s life with their performance of Frida, Frida, Frida!, and you can finish the evening with a slice of complimentary cake in the Atrium to wish Frida a happy birthday.
