Art in Your World: Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera at Phoenix’s Heard Museum
Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibit at the Heard Museum in Phoenix is an interesting, interactive exhibit of world famous Mexican artists from the last century. We decided to check it out a couple of weekends ago, and we recommend going! Don’t miss this exhibit at the Heard Museum! It’s the only North American stop for the the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection.
Even if you’re not a fan, it’s a rare opportunity to see some of the most famous artwork in the world up close and personal.
Also on display at the Heard museum were multitudes of traditional outfits worn by Frida herself, including jewelry and headdresses, jackets, bags, and shoes. Fascinating!
A special part of the exhibit is the collection of sketches on display. We thought it was very unique and unusual to get to see so many sketches, including some political satire.
The Gelmans, whose collection is on display, were Mexican-based European emigres who were friends of the artists. On view will be Kahlo’s Self Portrait with Monkeys and Diego on My Mind, and Rivera’s Calla Lily Vendor and Sunflowers.
There are several works by each artist, and also photographs by Edward Weston, Lola Álvarez Bravo and Frida Kahlo’s father, Guillermo Kahlo.
The rest of the Heard Museum is a visual treat as well, and worth the trip to Phoenix to see! We hope you get a chance to check out this exhibit before it leaves town August 20th.
