By Yasmin Hernandez

 

Soldaderas Mural AR project features Hernandez’ Soldaderas mural of Frida Kahlo and Julia de Burgos located in the Modesto Flores Community Garden on Lexington Avenue. Through video clips and images, Soldaderas Mural AR provides viewers with interactive media content about the lives and works of these two amazing artists, who also happened to be “guerreras” (women warriors) of their times. According to the artist, both the physical mural and the augmented reality Soldaderas Mural project, honor the common histories and struggles of Mexicans and Puerto Ricans, and is a call for continued and increased solidarity between the two communities in El Barrio and abroad.
