The South Haven Center for the Arts celebrated the art and life of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo during 2020 with events centered around the themes of her work: Mexican Folk Art projects to do at home, window displays of Mexican artifacts, "Beyond, Behind, Beneath: Narrative Self-Portraiture"—an exhibition inspired by Frida's prolific body of portraiture—and the Frida Garden Walk.
An integral part of life for Frida was her garden at Casa Azul, her home in Mexico City. Thanks to a long list of local businesses, non-profits, and private homeowners, gardens full of the flowers Frida loved grew up around town. The gardens were complemented by original artwork created by South Haven artist Jen Sistrunk and a story about Frida's life's work—her gardens and her art.
