"I want to be able to forge my own path," Bobbie Burgers explains, "create my own genre, and not worry about where I sit in relation to other artists. I create art that interests me, and that is the only type of art that I will ever be able to create. I will never be able to follow a trend of a group; I am far too isolated from larger art trends. I think that we all just do what we do well, and respect each other for it."

Detail from The Arsenal, 1928, by Diego Rivera. The work, painted for the Mexican Ministry Of Education in 1928 to promote national pride and culture, clearly reflects the artist's passion for politics. Frida Kahlo is depicted in the center of the work, handing out weapons to peasants. If Rivera was dedicated to the vision of Mexico enjoying a socialist future, then he found his equal in Frida Kahlo, whose background and education provided a solid grounding for political engagement.
