This weekend is the opening of Frida Kahlo – Her Photos, at the Heard Museum. Phoenix is one of only a few major U.S. cities to host this exhibit. The show just arrived from Mexico, and when it wraps up here in February, it will go on to New Zealand!
The Phoenix Fridas are very proud to have this show come to our beloved city. It shows that Phoenix is literally”on the map” when it comes to arts and culture. We were already looking forward to the event when Janet Cantley, museum curator, called us and invited us to be a part of a second exhibit to go with the Frida show, called
Las Favoritas de Frida: Selections from the Heard Collection
Opening October 31, 2015
On display through September 28, 2016
This show is a companion to the main exhibit, and it is comprised of artifacts from the Heard collection that were of the same time and area of Frida’s life. Each Frida was invited to choose a piece and have it showcased as inspiration!
In addition, Maya made a documentary on our group!
Here is Carmen, checking out the goods!
Here is the piece I chose – ceramics of course! I love ceramics!
And we’re also going to be a part of a special celebration!
Stay tuned, we’ll have more pictures to come!
