Hi! How are you? It’s been awhile since our last update!
We’ve been quite busy seeing family and friends, settling in and unpacking boxes at our new home in Phoenix over the last month.
|(Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Exhibit/Heard Museum)|
We had a great time going through all the American Indian cultural exhibits at the Heard Museum, but were most thrilled to see Kahlo and Rivera’s masterpieces from Mexico. We had been waiting to see their work in person for some time – Frida has long been an icon in my culture and has been my favorite artist as long as I can remember. So, it felt as if the stars had aligned when our move allowed us to see the exhibit during its last weekend on display in Phoenix – the only North American stop for the gallery, which is on a global tour.
It was incredible to see Kahlo’s iconic “Self Portrait with Monkeys” and Rivera’s “Sunflowers,” in addition to more than 50 photographs that family and friends had taken of Kahlo throughout her life.
To make the visit even more special, we had our daughter with us, who absolutely loved looking at all the vivid imagery surrounding her. We can’t wait to teach her all about her culture and about Frida and Diego one day!
Did you have the opportunity to see Frida and Diego’s exhibit?
What was your favorite piece of work?
