Arkansas Latinas en Bici presents the Tour de Frida – a public art-inspired cycling event celebrating the life and death of artist Frida Kahlo and the Northwest Arkansas Latinx community. *Event moved from July 17 to July 31 due to inclement weather*

Open to all, join members of Arkansas Latinas en Bici this July for a guided art tour around Fayetteville, Arkansas – experiencing Fayetteville’s extensive paved trail network, its bicycle-friendly streets and dozens of public art pieces.

Starting at Fayetteville’s Walker Park, embark on a bike ride in exploration of murals and sculptures by prominent artists including Octavio Logo, Bumblebee, Olivia Trimble, Joleen Jewel, Stacy Bates, Hank Kaminsky and more.

Once finished, continue the festivities with food and drink in a fun, family-friendly outdoor setting.

A prominent Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo was a surrealist known for her many self-portraits and works inspired by Mexico. Inspired by the country's popular culture, she employed a folk art style to explore questions of identity, gender, class, and race in Mexican society.
