Art, an intimate Mexican fiesta, and a beautiful green space where you can literally “smell the roses” makes for a relaxing Saturday after the crazy work week— don’t you think? The New York Botanical Garden is paying ode to Frida Kahlo’s appreciation for beauty and the natural world with it’s newly opened exhibition, “Frida Kahlo: Art. Garden. Life.” This first ever event will showcase rare displays of original Kahlo paintings and works on paper, while re-imagining the iconic artist’s famed garden and studio at the Casa Azul, her lifelong home in Mexico City that significantly influenced her work, relationships, and feminist efforts. 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.
As the sun has finally been shining upon NYC, we’re ready to be inspired by anything that can be found outdoors. See more on the exhibition here, and let us know what you think!
