Museum Exhibitions: Future Exhibitions

The World of Frida

September 19 – November 15, 2020

Coming to the CCAE from the Bedford Gallery in California, this exhibition celebrates the culture, style, and persona of visionary painter Frida Kahlo, an artist who continues to inspire with her story of love, adventure, and pain. With over 100 works in all types of media by contemporary artists in the exhibition and record-breaking attendance during its first showing, the legacy of this iconic artist is still strong a century after her life and career.

Frida Kahlo is the subject of The World of Frida, a traveling exhibition that features 150 artists’ interpretation of her life and art, her love of animals, and her vibrant Mexican culture. The artists in this show hail from around the world and work in all forms of media including painting, photography, and sculpture.
