NYC OPERA TRIP FALL 2015: NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDENS- FRIDA KAHLO- ART GARDEN LIFE

Today Frida Kahlo is acknowledged worldwide as one of the leading artists of the 20th century. Together with her husband, muralist Diego Rivera, Kahlo created a beautiful garden at the Casa Azul (Blue House), her lifelong home in Coyoacán, Mexico City, which served as both a creative refuge and a source of artistic inspiration. NYBG curators and horticulturists were inspired by the garden and by Kahlo’s use of botanical imagery in her paintings to develop an exhibition that explores her deep engagement with the natural world.

This blockbuster exhibition is the first to examine Frida Kahlo’s keen appreciation for the beauty and variety of the natural world, as evidenced by her home and garden as well as the complex use of plant imagery in her artwork. Featuring a rare display of more than a dozen original Kahlo paintings and works on paper, this limited six-month engagement also reimagines the iconic artist’s famed garden and studio at the Casa Azul, her lifelong home in Mexico City.
