Earlier this week, an organization called “Today Is Art Day” launched a Kickstarter campaign to produce the latest in a line of action figures. First came the Vincent van Gogh action figure. Now, joining him in the ‘Art History Heroes Collection,’ there will be a Frida Kahlo figure. (Yes, they’ve already raised $19,490, surpassing their $14,585 goal.) Standing 5 inches tall, made of high quality plastic, Frida will come with a monkey attached to her back, and a detachable surrealist heart. Expect delivery in September.
