This month recognizes women in history who have made an impact on our world. Here are three women who led significant change with their influence in the arts.
Marian Anderson was the first African-American to sing at the Metropolitan Opera in 1955. She began singing in the church choir as a young girl and at the age of 89, received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
Isadora Duncan founded Modern Dance, and inspired many visual artists including Auguste Rodin with her creative style. You may remember the famous automobile scene in “Isadora” circa 1968 when her silk scarf became caught in the wheel of the tire, strangling her.
And last but not least, Frida Kahlo, the Mexican painter whose physical limitations caused her to spend most of her life indoors painting, often self-portraits depicting emotional pain. She was the first Mexican artist to be featured at the Louvre.
