School's Out: Mexico City

After a week back in Florida with family, today I'm flying to Mexico City. Last year's winter break provided so much inspiration for my own art practice, and gave me a chance to connect my students with other cultures in a meaningful way.

Mexico City is home to one of my absolute favorite artists, Frida Kahlo. I'm looking forward to being surrounded by the colors, textures and inhabitants of the city that inspired her. Here are some of the places on my list to explore:

• La Casa Azul - Frida Kahlo's home

Museo Tamayo - contemporary art museum

Mama Rumba - salsa dancing
