Gotta Visit Frida This Summer

Yahoo News reports that the 100th birthday of artist and feminist icon Frida Kahlo will be honored with the largest-ever exhibit of her paintings at the Museum of the Fine Arts Palace in Mexico City.

The show will include 354 pieces plus manuscripts and also 50 letters that have not previously been exhibited. Yes, I guess I'm going to be "forced" to go visit Mexico City again this year.

Hi Billie, I imagine that you will visit the 'Blue House'

This one is in Coyoacan, a very nice district.

Saludos!!!!

Wolv, I've visited the Blue House before but it has been a while and I understand that it has been refurbished. So, yes, I'll probably go there too. My interest in Frida and other artists from her era grew out of reading about Edward Weston's years in Mexico. I think that the art of that period was just amazing and original Mexican.
