Join Ohio Regional Music Arts and Cultural Outreach (ORMACO) as we travel to Chicago to experience “Frida Kahlo 2020” at the Cleve Carney Museum of Art at the McAnich Arts Center and Belushi Performance Hall on Saturday, August 29, 2020. The exhibition will present 26 original works by Kahlo on loan from the Museo Dolores Olmedo in Mexico City, featuring a selection of oil paintings and works on paper that span the artist’s life.
Alongside the 26-piece collection is an immersive exhibition that features a multimedia timeline of the artist’s life, a video presentation, reproductions of Kahlo’s clothing and a “poetry garden” designed by Ball Horticultural Company. These historical exhibits allow viewers to understand Kahlo’s life and artwork through a variety of different contexts, providing a framework of the personal events and circumstances that led Kahlo to become one of the most significant painters of the 20th century and our time.
