The Dallas Museum of Art 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 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.

Rules include:

  • 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.

The DMA is celebrating the iconic artist from 6-9 pm with $6 off special exhibition tickets for "México 1900–1950: Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, José Clemente Orozco, and the Avant-Garde." Dine in the DMA Cafe throughout the night with 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 help guests embrace the unibrow with complimentary Frida Kahlo–inspired looks. The Dallas Black Dance Theatre will take guests on a journey through Frida’s life with their performance of Frida, Frida, Frida!, and guests can finish the evening with a slice of complimentary cake in the Atrium to wish Frida a happy birthday.
