About halfway through its exhibition and open until November 1, 2015 is the NY Botanical Gardens Frida Kahlo replication of her garden/studio from Casa Azul in Mexico where her and her husband Diego Riveria had their art studio. The concept is great and imagery looks like authentic. Put this on your list.
MAY 16 — NOV. 1 2015
This blockbuster exhibition is 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 also reimagines 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 music, lectures, Frida al Fresco evenings, Mexican-inspired shopping and dining experiences, and hands-on art activities for kids.
