Frida Kahlo's Garden

(Cancelled)

Frida Kahlo is considered one of the most significant artists of the 20th century. Her body of work, consisting of some 250 paintings and drawings, is at once intensely personal and universal in scope, and relies heavily on the natural world. The exhibition transports visitors to Kahlos' garden to experience her world as she did.
