It seems that San Antonio's love for Frida Kahlo is constantly growing, with events, restaurants and themed shows inspired by the artist popping up throughout the city year-round.

Last July's Frida Festival, which featured Kahlo-influenced work by 30 artisans and vendors, filled Brick at Blue Star Arts Complex with admirers and Frida look-a-likes. In September, Andrea Garcia opened Casa Azul, a Southtown ode to Kahlo's longtime home, La Casa Azul, that caters to Kahlo's followers, pays respects to the painter and quickly became a popular eatery in the area.

And now, Que Retro Arts presents "For the Love of Frida Art Walk" from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on February  18 at the Wonderland of Americas (4522 Fredericksburg). The craft market will showcase the work of eight local artists and will offer a preview of what to expect at this year's Frida Fest, which has been scheduled for July 15. So if you haven't gotten a taste of San Antonio's obsession with the Mexican artist, here's yet another chance.
