The South Haven Center for the Arts welcomes you to explore the life, artwork, garden and inspirations of artist Frida Kahlo

Exploring the Life and Garden of Frida Kahlo

Sponsored by the South Haven Community Foundation, Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs, National Endowment for the Arts, Edward Jones Office of Paul Hix, local businesses and non-profits, and private donations.

It is because of all the generous support from local businesses
that the South Haven Center for the Arts has been able to
create this out door exhibition in South Haven this summer
2020! Thank you to our funders, sponsors and our volunteers!

Learn about the life and art of Frida Kahlo this summer with a garden tour honoring Frida's gardens at Casa Azul, her home in Mexico City. Walk, bike, or drive to see calla lilies, sunflowers, zinnias, elephant ears, and succulents—all native flowers that Frida loved—graciously planted by downtown businesses, non-profits, and local homeowners. 

Plant your very own Frida Kahlo flower garden at home! The Frida Kahlo Advisory Committee invites you to create a live plant installation in your home garden to celebrate the nature that inspired Frida Kahlo’s work. Send photos of your garden to Celebrate Frida with us now through the end of August 2020.

Frida Kahlo Inspired Window Displays

In honor of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, the South Haven Center for the Arts created a series of window installations during the summer of 2020 that featured various objects illustrating Frida's love of the art created by the indigenous people of Mexico, who Frida admired greatly for their hard work and talent. Here you will see examples of the types of things Frida may have collected herself for display in her home in Mexico City, Casa Azul. There are also examples of the unique style of fashion Frida developed and was known for throughout her life.
