Fans of the beloved artist Frida Kahlo can now see an intimate exhibit celebrating the woman behind the brush. The Arkansas Arts Center officially opened its new exhibit "Photographing Frida: Portraits of Frida Kahlo/Fotografiando Frida: Retratos de Frida Kahlo" today. The exhibit will run through April 14.
Featuring 65 images of one of Mexico’s greatest painters, the exhibit offers glimpses of Kahlo both "as art and artist," capturing everything from her tumultuous marriage to muralist Diego Rivera to her fascination with fashion to the intimate moments of her everyday life.
To celebrate the opening, the AAC has a full lineup of events and classes themed around the exhibition. On the first Sunday of each month during the exhibition, the AAC is offering free, professional family portraits inspired by "Photographing Frida." Additionally, the museum will be open for select Late Nights at the Arkansas Arts Center.
Visitors are invited to explore the galleries, browse the Museum Shop and enjoy dinner at Watercolor in the Park until 9 p.m. The first Late Night is Thursday, Feb. 21. On Feb. 16, painting enthusiasts will also have the chance to Paint Like Frida during a class led by Drawing and Painting Department Chair Robert Bean and Michael Shaeffer.
