Audio guides available in both English and Spanish. Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics, and Paining features more than 120 paintings and drawings by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, including an important group of photographs by artists who captured the couple’s shared passion for each other and for Mexico’s revolutionary culture during the 1920s and 1930s.
