March 27 – August 29, 2021

The World of Frida, celebrates the culture, style, and persona of visionary painter Frida Kahlo, an artist who continues to inspire with her story of love, adventure, and pain. Featuring over 100 national and international artists working in a wide array of media, the exhibition includes Frida Kahlo as the subject, as well as artworks inspired by her life and art, her beautiful garden, Mexican culture and fashion, vibrant colors, surrealism, and more.
Curator Carrie Lederer states, “Iconic Frida Kahlo was a true visionary. Her paintings—exquisite and brutally honest—are a testimony to the way she thought and lived and embraced life. Universally loved, her paintings continue to be an inspiration for artists worldwide. This exhibition demonstrates the power and reach of Kahlo’s work, reflecting a rich range of interpretation in practically every media.”
The World of Frida
