Coming to So Cal: Frida Kahlo, Her Photos at MOLAA
I'm excited to announce an upcoming exhibit at the Museum of Latin American Art titled, Frida Kahlo, Her Photos. It presents over two hundred images--both traditional images and more candid shots--from Frida Kahlo’s personal Casa Azul archive in Mexico City and I am so excited that I get to attend the preview tomorrow!
Frida Kahlo has been my muse since I was 18 years old and I feel like I can never know enough about her. I seriously cannot wait to feast my eyes on photos of her that I have never seen before. It is such a privilege to have anything authentic and Frida-related here in Southern California. I wish all of my fellow Frida fanatics could come with me to the preview.
The image of the Frida peg doll above is from a series I'm working on and I couldn't resist sharing a sneak peak of it. Isn't this Frida pequeña so freaking adorable? I just can't with the cuteness.
Oh! MOLAA is also hosting Fridamania: Women’s Day Festival 2014, a day that celebrates the contributions of women to art, movement, and music. A Frida-inspired painting from yours truly (me!) will be featured in their virtual display. Come dressed up in your favorite Frida attire and join the Frida look-alike contest on Sunday, March 16th from 12-4pm.
Just look at all this Frida goodness being offered!
The Frida Kahlo, Her Photos exhibit begins March 16 and runs until June 8, 2014. The Museum of Latin American Art is located at 628 Alamitos Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90802 | 562.437.1689
