Synopsis: The emotionally raw, self-reflective imagery of the paintings of FRIDA KAHLO. The highly emotive, enchanting allure of the poetry of MARIA R. PALACIOS. At last, the sexually charged energies and passions of their largely indistinguishable muses meet within these pages. Color into words, death to life, "Dressing Skeletons: A Poetic Tribute to Frida Kahlo" is among the most profoundly personal cross-discipline tributes any artist has ever bestowed upon another. Enter the provocative, torturous world of two of the greatest artists Latin American culture has ever produced!
About the Author: Maria R. Palacios is a poet, author, spoken word performer, motivational speaker, social change advocate, disability rights activist, and workshop facilitator. Featured on numerous local radio shows and podcasts, nationally syndicated programs, and in many international publications, Maria?s impact on the rights of children, women, people with disabilities, and the Hispanic community is as immeasurable as her artistry is undeniable. Some of Maria?s most cherished accomplishments and positions include her participation in efforts that led to the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, being inducted into the Hispanic Women in Leadership Hall of Fame in 1996 and receiving the Hispanic Excellence Award in 1997, being a member of the International Guild of Disabled Artists and Performers since 2009, exploring her personal connection to Frida Kahlo through live performances of her poetry at Houston?s annual Frida Fest celebration for seven straight years, participating in the Gulf Coast Poetry Tour (2009), and creating a publishing company (Atahualpa Press) that has brought five of her titles to life as well as two by other artists with disabilities. Of particular passion to Maria is Sins Invalid, a performance project of artists with disabilities. With this group she has performed since 2007, co-facilitated their Tongue Rhythm Multi-Disciplinary Poetry Workshop in 2008, and is featured in the 2013 documentary, "Sins Invalid: An Unashamed Claim to Beauty in the Face of Invisibility." In the artistic world, Maria is known as "The Goddess on Wheels."
