Speaking of gorgeous plant imagery…This show is going to be awesome!
Interesting to note- my last post- way back when I had a moment, was about Dahlias- and Dahlias are from Mexico, the birthplace of Frida Kahlo

The exhibition includes a reimagining of Kahlo’s studio overlooking the garden, as well as the organ pipe cactus fence located at Rivera’s studio in nearby San Ángel. Experience the Casa Azul as the ultimate expression of Kahlo’s connection to Mexico and the natural world.

MAY 16 — NOV. 1 2015
This blockbuster exhibition will be the first to examine Frida Kahlo’s keen appreciation for the beauty and variety of the natural world, as evidenced by her home and garden as well as the complex use of plant imagery in her artwork. Featuring a rare display of more than a dozen original Kahlo paintings and works on paper, this limited six-month engagement will also reimagine the iconic artist’s famed garden and studio at the Casa Azul, her lifelong home in Mexico City.
Accompanying events invite visitors to learn about Kahlo’s life and enduring cultural influence through poetry, lectures, Frida al Fresco evenings, Mexican-inspired shopping and dining experiences, and hands-on art activities for kids.
