Iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo’s birthday is July 6. Not surprisingly, many people online are celebrating Kahlo’s legacy, from tattoo tributes to birthday-inspired tweets.

We here at Latino USA went back to our archives to share segments we have done over the years about Kahlo.

Our first segment is a 2002 interview host Maria Hinojosa had with actor Salma Hayek, who played Kahlo in the movie Frida.

Last year, reporter Von Diaz traveled to both Detroit and Mexico to talk with people paying homage to Frida in food and in song.

Finally, we close our our Frida tribute with a visit to New York Botanical Garden, which had reimagined Frida’s garden at the Casa Azul.
