Frida Kahlo at The Dalí
Florida's first solo exhibition showcasing the extraordinary career and life of the acclaimed 20th-century artist, Frida Kahlo, will be hosted at The Dalí Museum in downtown St. Pete. The exhibit will feature a collection of more than 60 Kahlo pieces including 15 paintings, seven drawings and numerous personal photographs from the celebrated female artist and influential icon. The exhibition will extend outdoors where a special collection of flowers and plants representative of those in Kahlo's own garden at Casa Azul, her home in Mexico, will grace the grounds of the Museum's Avant-Garden. The Dalí will host a series of programs that engage visitors in journaling, Mexican cooking and gardening – some of Kahlo's favorite pastimes. The Museum's annual student exhibit will carry a corresponding theme of 'Surreal Identity,' based on the symbolic and autobiographical approach utilized by Kahlo and Dalí.
