The Prince George’s County Historical Society will partner with the University of Maryland’s Campus Club to celebrate Hispanic Heritage in a way that may surprise you. Both Frida Kahlo and Franz Kafka lived with physical and emotional pain. Evelyn Torton Beck, PhD has studied the similarities between Kahlo and Kafka with special attention to how they used their respective art forms to manage their illnesses and injuries. Professor Beck’s scholarship finds relevance with the ways many of us use art as a way of channeling pain into productivity and joy.
