Frida & Friends, Part 1 | The Anguish in the Brush


Presented by Art Historian, Jacqueline Hahn

Frida’s lust for life and her perseverance in maintaining hope helped her live through a huge double pain:
-the physical pain caused by her tragic bus accident.
-the emotional and mental pain suffered after her husband’s infidelities.
Drawing and painting from her bed or from a wheel chair saved her life. Her courage is an example of the tragic survival of a woman into art.

This talk takes place just one week before our much anticipated special exhibition, Frida Kahlo-Her Photos, opens to the public! Become an expert on Frida and impress a friend when you come back to see the exhibit - opening February 25, 2017!

This program is sponsored by the Latin American Arts Council, an affiliate council of the Bowers Museum.
